looking to see if anyone here has utilized whatever program MDC has for building new ponds. i have a couple areas in mind on our property that, if dammed up, would make some nice ponds. but only looking at doing one for now. ive never dealt with building a pond at all so i really dont know where to start. im sure there would have to be tests done to determine if the areas would even hold water, i know my neighbor involved MDC when he had his pond built but i dont know details. does MDC even do some type of cost share deal for building ponds? any ideas(ballpark amount) what it could cost out of pocket? it would be in the middle of mature timber with the next nearest water source being the creek at the front of the property, just guessing, 300 yards away- or more. any info from anyone who has experience/ dealt with this before is appreciated.
