A full pond! Nice.. I don't know why my pic isn't showing up for you. It must be something to do with Photobucket. I'll try to post a link. If I can remember how to do it.

After 0.85 inches more rain early this afternoon, both my ponds are up to 0.3 acres and running over the grassy spillways with no noticeable erosion. Here's a pic of each spillway. The first one is older pond. It empties into the newer pond.

The rain I got Tuesday night gave me well over a foot I think but by yesterday after work about half of that or more had soaked up.It had only gave me 4 or 5 inches in the sediment pond.Last night I got just over 2 1/4 inches of rain.When I got up this morning water was running in my ditch out front so I new it was a good one,so I ran over to check things out.The little sediment pond was full and still had a little water flowing over the spill way.The main pond was up 2 foot or so.This afternoon we got just enough rain to put my new rain gauge on the 3" mark with last nights rain.I went back over right when the rain stopped,there was still a little water flowing from the sediment pond and I had about another foot in the main pond.I think I have over 4' in it now.I just hope it don't soak up to much of it.My pond builder says with as dry as it's been,that it's going to soak up a lot as it fills.I will try to get some pictures up later.
John,I'm glad to hear your full!

Looking good Bob. Hopefully we will get some more rain in the weeks ahead.
John, glad you are full. Be nice to go back to average rainfall again.

Thanks Jeff!I'm glad to see some water in it,now I just got to hope it holds it.lol!My pond builder said with as dry as it's been the ground has cracks in it and it's going to soak up even more water than we want until things close up.I'm getting ready to go check on it and will be keeping a close eye on things and won't be able to rest till I know it's holding.lol!
They say we should get more rain in the middle of the week,but their not saying how much.I hope you get some up north.

Bobbss, you could go ahead and stock FHM and BG any time now. You have plenty of water for that, as long as your pond is holding water well enough.

Thanks John,I just got back from checking on things.The little sediment pond had dropped a few inches,which he didn't build to hold water but he said it might anyway and I hope it does.The main pond looked good so far.It was up a few more inches from yesterday when the rain first stopped and still had a tiny trickle going in.I plan to go back over in a few hours and check again.

Bob, How deep will that be when full? It looks like more than 15 feet to me.

It should be 19' when full.I just came back from checking on it and really couldn't see any change.It still had a very tiny trickle going in.I'm sure it's got to be soaking some up as dry as it's been and never had any real water in it.I'll check it in the morning.

Four weeks ago every thing was brown.About two weeks ago I thought things looked like they might be trying to turn a little green.Last week I could tell that things were getting greener.Now things are really getting green.I did a little more seeding today.I'm just trying to fill in some of the thin spots.Do you guys think it's to early for seeding?I want to make sure I get the spillway area growing as good as I can,in case I get lucky and it fills up and starts flowing.lol!Is anyone else seeing things green up?

Pond was down 4' before 6.6" of rain -



EDIT: Reposting image. Trying hosting image over at imgur instead of PhotoBucket which seems to stink like a kettle of dead fish with a massively restrictive bandwidth limit.

I am holding off putting more grass seed down as I believe if it sprouts it can be killed by a freeze. So I am waiting for later in March.

My place came up 5 feet and has about 2 inches going out the spillway pipe. Sure is nice to see it full!

Glad to hear your full Redonthehead.I hope mine gets there before long.
I was thinking that it my freeze the young sprouts.I'll probably wait to put more down.I just put down about $10.00 worth mostly on my spillways.I figured it was worth a chance on those areas,to maybe get a head start.

Yes, pond is full and inflow is still about 40-50 gallons per minute. Last night it was about 6" below the emergency spillway - it's a bit lower today but still above pool.

Try these:

4' down on Feb 18

Full pool today

Bob, it appears we got a heck of a lot more rain in southern Jeffco than you got up there. That's disappointing. I thought for sure when they first started talking this rain up that you were going to top. The ground being so dry has sure been an issue. The final batch of rain after the ground was saturated is what pushed me over the top. Without that last batch I wouldn't have topped either.

They're only predicting .25" for the next 7 days so don't know if the drought is on the decline or not.

EDIT: Changed to hosting images over at imgur instead of PhotoBucket

Took mine a while to establish a regular pace of water level drop. I'm at about 1/4" a day now. I obsessed over it for the first year. Put in polymers to help seal it up. Dug out and repacked around the overflow pipe. I'll bet your, very thirsty, fresh dirt is really sucking up the H2O.
Have you pounded in a stake to measure the drop accurately?

Thanks Jeff!I haven't drove a stake in yet since I still have 15' or so to fill.I was planning to wait until it was near full,but I guess I could go ahead and drive in a few stakes running up the bank that I can measure.How many inches a day were you loosing when it first started filling?
I know I have a lot going against me.It was built at the beginning of a drought and has been in one for the 6 months since it was done.
