Well the weather has finally warmed and the pond construction which started last October with the draining of the old pond can now resume. The old pond was dug out and enlarged last Oct, the new 60 mil liner installed and the retaining wall was built before the weather forced us to stop. This week the large rocks have been collected from the old quarry on the farm, and the contractor has started shaping the waterfall and stream.

It will feature a waterfall filter and skimmer intake. I will have 2 pumps, the waterfall pump will move about 5500 GPH.
