Interesting retention pond clean up

This is at a Townhouse project and they will cover it with a deck.
It was just paved so had to do the final cleanup to the retention pond.
12+ inches of muddy silt.
No access.Walls are 9foot 6 inches tall at the lowest.
Hoisted a Ditch Witch SK 350 in and went to work.
Pushed it to the corner and used the Excavator to dip it out.
It was another companies job I just supplied the excavator and the know how.LOL
I had to dig with bucket out of view.

I have grown quite fond of it.
Really good machine.
It was hard to make the payment at first but it has now started earning it's keep.
The one thing I do not like is when you swing the front door up the Wiper motor is in such a position that I hit my head when climbing in if I am not careful.

Let me get this straight now, do the houses there have retention ponds built underneath to hold water while there is a major rain storm?
