New Pond Design and Construction
New Pond Construction by Wade Bales, Quality Lakes, Inc. – www.qualitylakes.com
One of our lake construction projects is underway! Our clients had the opportunity to build two new ponds, the first of which was completed in 2009. Great little pond, growing largemouth and bluegill as we speak. The second pond is under construction now. With the help of our partners at The Mapping Network, we designed a 5-7 acre pond based on the available acreage. Unfortunately there were many cubic yards of fill that had to remain on site. However, creating a contour map with the required slopes and more importantly the necessary access and structure for boat and bank anglers alike, made the process easier for the contractor and has our client very excited about a great new pond. Plenty of structure has already been added. Liming, stocking, and littoral plantings will take place later this year.
