John dug out this pond and the one pictured above this summer and he built head walls in front of the drain holes...you can see one on the right of this bottom picture. This raises the water level in each pond. There are four ponds in our subdivision, 3 of which John dug. Someone might see our ponds and say...that's not a pond, it's more of a puddle...in comparison to lakes--they are quite small. John is working on designing an extension to this subdivision that would add another 18 lots where people can build their own house. .
