Advice on this
Thinking of ponding up of a small creek on property. Naturally low lying area. Thinking maxium depth 2 1/2 to 3 ft. have lots of clay based soil for the dam building I know a riser or some type of drainage pipe needed. Not trying to build the Hoover Dam just a stock source of water for my garden and flower beds. I have some water lilies I collected years ago in preformed plastic ponds but thinking of putting some of them in this new pond area.
Needing any advice or pointers. I've already checked no permit is required for such small project.
