 In rural Kansas, the farm pond is a central part of family life.

Aside from providing a water source for range cattle and other livestock, some ponds provide recreation for family members, including swimming, fishing and even boating. In an emergency, water from the pond may even help to put out a property fire.

All of which, says K-State Research and Extension wildlife specialist Charlie Lee, makes it more important to maintain the health of those ponds.
