The Polk County Conservation Board is applying for $329,226 to build 7 water and sediment basins and subsequently dredge the Thomas Mitchell Pond located in the Camp Creek Watershed. By building the water and sediment basins prior to dredging the pond, the life of the pond will be exponentially extended. After completion of the dredging, natural vegetation and wildlife will be restored in and around the pond. Thomas Mitchell Pond, located in the southeast corner of Polk County, was selected as it is located in one of the fastest growing parts of the Greater Des Moines Metropolitan area.
