Retention ponds are typically used in agricultural, residential and commercial settings to catch runoff water from higher elevations. A 2015 study done by the University of California Davis found that retention ponds can also be used in the treatment and reuse of wastewater from wineries. Several wineries have used retention ponds over the years to treat wastewater for use in irrigation; however, there are challenges. Retention ponds are man-made basins that depend on the natural flow of water down hills and inclines. Retention ponds traditionally reduce the risk of flooding during heavy rains, as they are specifically engineered for these circumstances.
