I turned on the water well for the pond. I just could not go any longer without water additions. The drought is kicking my butt, Rains are in the forecast but if we don't get some good rains the ground is going to suck it up before I get any run off into the pond. Even with 50 gpm it will take a long time before I get my water back to normal levels. Come on rains!


Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.

Good luck TGW1!

August evaporation rate in Texas >>> November evaporation rate in Texas, which should make this pumping much more efficient in helping your pond.

I don't know the particulars of your aquifer or your water well. Do you have a programmable on/off control on your well? (Or by hand if you live at pond location.)

I would be sure to give the pump and the aquifer some "resting" time. When you pull the producing water level all of the way down to the casing slots, it becomes more likely for bad things to happen to either your pump or your well bore.

P.S. I am still performing rain dances here in Kansas for our wheat and all of the trees I planted at the farm. Should I face towards Texas on my next few dances? laugh
