Pond and Dam Repair Underway

Finally have the contractor engaged and onsite to dredge the pond, install a proper overflow pipe, and repair the dam.  It is still slow going as he’s trying to get the pond drained as much as possible so he can get his equipment into the pond without getting stuck.  So far he has installed the pipe and riser but has left the ‘tee’ at the bottom open so that water will drain through the pipe instead of continuing to erode the dam.  Once he gets a little further we’re going to have a dock installed where the overflow pipe is right off of the dam.   Should be a pretty darn nice pond once its all done.
