Smart ponds on Walmart property aim to protect the Chesapeake Bay

Smart ponds on Walmart property aim to protect the Chesapeake Bay

The stormwater management technology is designed to address pollution and flooding. Through a partnership between state and private entities, it’s being rolled out in four sites in Maryland.

Maryland is piloting new technology that’s designed to help curb pollution and flooding: Its transportation and environment departments are contributing $4 million to introduce smart ponds in four locations around the state.

The state government is also working with Boston-based tech company Opti and the Arlington, Virginia-based nonprofit Nature Conservancy to introduce the IoT applications, while the testing waters are ponds that sit on land owned by Walmart. Locations are as follows:

  • Walmart Supercenter Fruitland, 409 N. Fruitland Blvd.
  • Walmart Supercenter Aberdeen, 645 S. Philadelphia Blvd.
  • Walmart Supercenter North East, 75 North East Plaza
  • Sam’s Club Hagerstown, 1700 Wesel Blvd.
