  Original Published: 8/29/2013The Washington Township Trustees and the Richland Soil and Water Conservation District hosted a pond clinic Wednesday on Sandy Lane Drive near Mansfield-Lucas Road. Township trustee Bob Entenmann said the pond clinic was held in response to concerns from residents about algae in the pond and a large number of mosquitoes in the area. Soil and conservation director, John Hildreth, presented helpful information. Entenmann said mosquitoe traps were set up around the pond and no diseases were found to be carried by mosquitoes. He said a water test was also conducted on the pond to check for bacteria which could be coming in from area septic systems and chemicals from lawn fertilizers. Entenmann said the tests were results were below the levels that would be considered harmful.
