I think this would vary depending on location and soil type. Here, I would have to "core" the dam. Basically dig a trench across the base of the dam and then fill it as I build. That creates a "notch" that reduces the chances of leak.
My point exactly!
Most all dams should be cored, even if coring may not seem to be needed.
Awful job to dig it all up, and start over.
