Pond Drama

If you have played recently, you may have noticed that the pond on #8 is really low. Upon inspection, we discovered a 4 inch hole in the overflow drain. This drain takes any excess water to Traver Creek. Unfortunately, the leak was about 18 inches below where we would normally want the pond. We got the new plastic drain pipe the other day an d that enabled us to replace the faulty pipe.

Here you can see how much the pond level had dropped (and the new elbow)

After we dug around the old pipe...

we had to cut it.

The old section. You can see the hole, right where the two sections were joined together.

Overflow fixed and waiting for rain to fill the pond back up.
