Hello, I purchased a property about a year ago. It has a pond that was dug probably around 20 years or so ago. It has never held water. There's about a foot of water in the bottom. I would guess it to be dug about 20 feet deep at the lowest point. I was hoping to get some suggestions on what I would need to do to make this a viable pond that we can enjoy. Thanks.

who ever dug the pond first could have not had a key way in the in the damn installed and also the ground might not be able to hold water

No key way, improper soils, a leak to bottom. The list goes on.
The bottom line is to get an experienced dam builder, not a dirt pushing dozer driver.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.
