The Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon are an
important process for cleaning storm water naturally. This natural
process is done by letting the storm water from the area
Avenue and Walnut Avenue and from the Bart Station to Mission Boulevard be
settled and cleaned naturally by tules and other plants catching the
debris that is left on the street and washed
down the storm drains by neglectful people.
The water from this area goes directly to the bay without any other contact with the air or water. These ponds are similar in function to the D.U.S.T. Marsh in Coyote Hills Regional Park. These Ponds were created in 1998 with the plan to have an educational resource center at the ponds to be built to help facilitate the use of the Tule Ponds as an important feature of environmental education for all ages.
Volunteers who helped were: Megan Fisher, Anthony Richmond, Rina Menta, Allison Ligh, Yu-San Huoh, Jenni Gebhardt, Janice Gebhardt, Michael York, and Douglas DeSelles. Thank you all for your help, the ponds look great!
