I have a very small pond fed by a spring. It has no outlet to any water shed. The pond is about 4 ft deep in the middle and about 30 ft in diameter. It freezes in the winter and temps here have gotten down to 18 to 20 below for short periods. There is a large amount of grass growing in the pond and i would like to control it. I have heard that grass carp are good for that. Is it legal to put them in the pond? Will they winter well? How many do I need to control the grass? Do you have other suggestions on how to control the grass? Thanks for your help in advance. Joe

Our pond has numerous large milk crates in the bottom of it. Why would someone put crates in the bottom of a pond, we would maybe like to take them out and make it deeper.
Hello, how would I know that I have blue green algae in our irrigation ponds, and if yes, how to get rid of them. We have heard a lot about how toxic they are to animals, especially dogs. Our dogs love to swim in the ponds, and now we are worried. I would appreciate any help you can give us. Are there any test kits we could use? Thank you very much in advance, and have a great day!

Two months ago, we moved into a house with a pond. We don't know the first thing about maintaining a pond. Now it is covered with algae. Who can I talk to? How do I get started? It's about a 1/10 of an acre.

My community has a gross pond with no circulation. It gets a thick layer of green scum on it. What can we do to prevent or minimize?

I have owned a piece of land for 20 years. Sometime prior to my ownership it was a dairy farm. I believe it quit being a dairy farm at least 10 years before my purchase. There is a "pond" which my understanding was at one time a "manure tea" pond. We understand it has a natural clay base and if fed by a spring.
What is likely the status of the "pond" ? I'm not looking to swim in it, but how do we clean it up/make it usable for animals likes ducks or if my dog jumps in? Thank you.
