Leak Repaired

Some of you may have been wondering why the water level in the pond at eighteen tees has been so low all year. The reason for that has been that the overflow collar had a leak around it causing the water to flow out to the current level.

The other day I had a contractor out to try and repair the collar seal and I think we were successful in doing so.  He used a hydraulic cement to reseal the joints between two of the collars.  We have begun to raise the water level to the point at where water would leak and it appears to be holding so far.  Over the next several days we will top off the water level in the pond so that it will once again look as it should.
