|Pond dam before project.|
|Once dirt and limestone rocks were removed,|
the contractor chiseled into bedrock
to prepare for weir footing.
|The footing was chiseled 2' into the bedrock,|
then a rebar frame is installed.
|Once the rebar was installed, concrete for|
the footing was poured.
|The footing cured for almost a week, then the wall forms were installed and|
concrete was poured.
|After 3 days, the formed were removed and we had "a wall in a hole"|
as one of our members put it. At this point it's still hard to visualize
what the finished product will be.
|With all concrete work completed, the contractor got busy installing the clay|
on either side of the wall. Starting to look like something now.
|All of the limestone that was discovered early in the project was reused to|
stabilize the pond banks and give the downstream side more character
|Finshed the project just in time to get a big rain and fill the pond behind the weir. Couldn't be happier with how it turned out.|
