Can someone give me advice on wht size over flow pipe or if I need 1. Hopefully I will around 3/4 acre when done and full. Prolly about 2 acre water shed. The pond before the dig was just under 1/2 acre. Never had overflow pipe before. Just flowed over side. Never was a problem before. Normally only couple times a year did it over flow.

If you enlarge the pond but not the watershed, overflow should be less of a problem rather than more.

Thanks for the quick replys. I was just thinking more water more problem. But common sense prevails again.

NRCS should be able to help you size your pipe for the watershed.

I sealed it up already last night. I decided to go without it. I can always dig it back out if needed. I still will prolly have to drop the water level again at some point. Im not using a laser level or nothing just eye balling it. This has been a completely low budget deal. So far only cost me diesel and time. I still have a night or 2 to finish up the dam. I did change the water shed slightly. I sloped my yard a little in places so the water runs into the pond now. Added some crushed limestone to the entrance point.

I think I'm close to being done. I feel like iv said that a few times lol. Went ahead and spread a pile of limestone in a few places today. I hope they will work good for spawning. If not no loss. On of the pictures is where the water flows into the pond. Hopefully it will help filter the water a little bit atleast.

Sometimes it not how big your toy is that matters. It's how many hours you are willing to play.

Just thought I'd stick a pole in the ground to measure how much I added. I'm hoping to add 3 feet when finished. I pretty sure I will have to add some to one spot on the bk damn. It's still around a foot low or so. I dont know where the spillway will be at yet. I kinda want the rains to come. I still want to get some more barrels in it for habitat.

Thank you it's hard to tell the scale and slopes of everything in pictures. If I was better with this I would put a video up of it. Any advice on wht to do before the rain comes is welcome here. Concerns, ideas or diy projects!!!
