Topic: Creating Sanctuaries out of Stormwater Facilities
Speaker: Mick Ribault, Founder Dragonfly Pond Works
Learn the most successful strategies for creating well-functioning stormwater facilities, and the five most common lake and pond problems that communities face — as well as the solutions. Due to increased regulation that calls for all kinds of stormwater remediation measures at newly developed properties, stormwater management has become a rapidly growing industry in North Carolina. Dragonfly Pond Works is an environmental service firm that specializes in lake and pond management. We believe stormwater facilities don't have to be ugly. This presentation will share insights on stormwater beautification solutions by which we help clients discover their sanctuary.
Mick Ribault is founder and president of Dragonfly Pond Works. The company serves corporate, public accounts and homeowner associations across the mid-Atlantic. Ten years ago, Dragonfly Pond Works sprouted from Ribault's passion for creating beautiful spaces that are a resource to the whole community. The company's team of environmental services specialists transforms retention ponds, sand filters, stormwater basins, water detention facilities, and other types of aquatic systems into healthy waterscapes. Ribault traces his love of all things aquatic to his childhood on the coast of Brittany, France. With a degree in fisheries and wildlife sciences from North Carolina State University, Ribault has been managing lakes and ponds in the southeast and Puerto Rico since 1999. Dragonfly Pond Works is headquartered in Apex, N.C., has offices in Wilmington, N.C., Charlotte, N.C. and Sarasota, and does business in eight states.
