There are many sources of water for a families activities.
Ponds are one of them. Pictures of construction of one of our ponds are below.
Installing drain pipe system:
Rough dam wall, drain pipes installed:
From the dam wall you can install a plastic pipe running underground downhill to your house, barn or wherever you want I can show you how to install a water filter that you will never need to service that will clean your drinking water.
Another water source is a spring if you are fortunate to have one. You will need to be able to install catchment and piping.
Another water source is a well. A well driller can drill one for you. A dowser can help locate the spot to drill. To get a dowser, contact: dowsers.org.
