In 2015, the authorities of the Polish town of Zdunska Wola decided to renovate the city’s municipal park, including the renovation of the existing pond.
Zdunska Wola, Poland
PondGard EPDM 1 mm
A tender for the design and construction was announced. The winning concept proposed not to create a new standard decorative pond, but to completely rebuild the existing one, transforming it into a natural pond with natural filtration.
Because of the abundance of space available, it was possible to create a separate smaller pond for the filtration. So instead of having two areas, as in a regular natural swimming pond, the renovation consisted in creating two separate ponds. In the small pond, the water is naturally threated by plants, a mix of gravels and filters, and then it is pumped back into the larger recreation pond.
In total, approximately 14,000 m² of Elevate’s PondGard EPDM membrane with a thickness of 1 mm were installed by landscaping company Re-Natura to waterproof the renovated ponds.
Works in the park began in 2016. The renovation of the ponds started in 2017 and was finished in 2019.
