       Improvements planned for
        Allerton mansion pond
    The mansion pond and surrounding area are a favorite spot for visitors to Al-
lerton Park. However, staff members will soon be emptying the pond to better
assess the cause of noticeable deterioration in the pondʼs health.
    In an effort to identify the causes of these problems and recommend a solu-
tion, Allerton Park and the UI department of natural resources and environmental
sciences have created a unique educational opportunity. During the next year, UI
students will propose and implement a restoration plan to improve the health of
the pond and restore beauty to the pond area.
    As the pond is drained, fish species will be relocated to the Allerton Diversi-
fied Farm Pond. While the pond is empty, research and repairs will be performed.
Data will be gathered on depth and composition of sediment, contour of the pond,
and water flow rates. The student team and Allerton staff members will remove
sediment to restore the original depth of the pond and plant aquatic vegetation
on the banks. If necessary, repairs will be made to the wall of the dam and pond
banks. After completing necessary repairs and improvements, the pond will be
allowed to refill naturally. When the water level returns to an appropriate depth,
the student team will introduce a diverse fish population to the pond.
    The restoration project is scheduled to continue through the summer of 2004.
Visitors will notice ongoing work by both students and Allerton staff members                                                                                             photo by Chris Hermann/Allerton Park
