Longview, if it's a year old now, I would be concerned. I'm just relating this to my pond that filling, I'm not an expert. I built my pond in mid summer in Texas (brutal heat and exaporation) We've had limited rain at best, but I've seen enough to know you should be holding more water than 6 inches. I went through July and August with no rain, lost approx. 1 foot a month. I am losing a lot of water to first time saturation, but once the level is stable, the evaporation is slow. September rains brougt it to about 4 feet deep, since then no rain and the milder temps have dropped it about 6 inches a month.
