Vertex Donates Aeration to Kids House
Posted on September 16, 2015
SANFORD, FL: A pond aeration system donation from Vertex Aquatic Solutions has the Kids House Wildlife Pond and Garden “bubbling over”.
Improving the Pond’s Water Quality with an Aeration Donation
A local lake management company provides ongoing water quality testing and monitoring for the Kids House Children’s Advocacy Center. Vertex became aware of the need for an aeration donation for the pond from this company. Adding oxygen to the pond creates a healthy ecosystem for plants and wildlife. Solar panels supply the power to run the aeration system so that the system is cost-free to operate and earth friendly.
This area is used by Kids House therapists to treat child clients in a nature-based setting. The addition of flowering native plants and trees around the pond attracts wildlife and beautifies the area creating a calm place for the staff to go to when they need to decompress and avoid burnout.
Kids House is a designated Certified Wildlife Garden with the National Wildlife Federation. During the dedication ceremony, the many community partners, including Vertex, who helped to make this project a reality were honored.
The organizations 1.5 acre storm water retention pond is a work in progress. They expect continued improvements to the area will bring positive outcomes for those who use it.
