My pond guy finally made it out Saturday and worked on my watershed. He didn't get as much clearing done as I was hoping for, but I think it should help a lot. He spent about half the day clearing some areas above the sediment pond, there is a lot more that can be done there. I think the biggest help will be that he spent the other half the day cutting a channel that wrapped around to the other side of the hill. It will dump in just down from the dam.Today I looked on a property viewer website that lets me measure acreage, and it looks like I added around 2 acres to my watershed. Another good thing is a lot of it had been cleared before for a power line running to a 911 tower, and the wooded part is more open than most of my woods. I'm sure my water will be getting muddy for a while, but it will be worth it if it starts filling faster. Now I probably won't get any rain. lol!

Bob,
I sure hope that helps! My pond has dropped about 18Ē. We havenít had a measurable rain in over a month up north. Itís the same old thing. My renters beans look pretty weak. Iím hoping we get some rain soon, or he will lose money.
The good news for me is the deer have been hammering the bean plants, so there should be a lot of them around come November. smile

Thanks Jeff, July and August gave me my best rain falls of the year. September hasn't given me much of anything so far, just over a half inch.
I hope you get some up your way soon. I think there is a chance of some rain coming in the area in 4 or 5 days.

I finally had some good rain and got good run off. My pond is finally starting to look like a pond so I thought I'd post a few pictures from yesterday. I think I have around 3' more to go, give or take a little. It always drops pretty fast after a lot of new ground goes under water for the first time so it may not be this high for long, but it sure is nice to see it near full after all this time!

Looking good Bob! We had a 2Ē rain in St Louis. I was hoping you got at least that much.

Thanks guys! I've been waiting longer than most people have to,and I'm still not there yet. Lol! But at least it's giving me some hope. Lol! It's been about 2years and 4.5 months.
Jeff I got about 5.63" since Thursday, the biggest rain I've had since it was built.
Right now I think it is about 120' at the dam and about 230 long.

Looking great!
Here in central MO we had approx 2+ inches over the weekend plus some snow, brought my pond up another ten inches which leaves me 10" short of full pool.
Was wondering why your pond goes back down a little after a new rain, I have been amazed at the minimal amount of fluctuation I have seen in my new pond this past summer, it didn't seem to even recede any in hot evaporation weather. I have an old survey grade stick that was damaged and I set it in the water tied to a steel post so I pretty much have right on the inch marks, and every rain it comes up x amount of inches and stays exactly there till the next rain event.

Thanks Gehajake,I wish mine did that good! Mine has several things against it. I didn't have the best clay,some of it was pretty good but most was real rocky and a lot of it was only 25-30 percent clay. The dam seems to hold good but the bowl didn't get enough compaction. If my budget was higher, I could of done better. Then it is basically built on top of a Ozark Mountain. I'm in the 2nd highest part of the state. Wells are over 600' deep in my area, so that probably doesn't help. So far it gets better the longer it is at the same level.
