    Filled by groundwater, surface, pumped? Do you expect that it will stay full all year?

    Nice clear looking water so far. When was the work done? If I tried that now it would me a soupy mess.

    Dirt work was done in June 05.
    Partially filled by groundwater, and runoff, and then kept topped off by well.

    I beleived we moved about 16,000 cubic yards of dirt.

    I had to build my pad site up about 3ft. to get out of the 100 yr. flood plain. Didn't want it to look funny so I built a huge gradual pad site.
