I would suggest you contact your local Soil & Water Conservation District. The office is located at 31935 SR 93, McArthur. The number is 740-596-5676.
They have technicians in the office who have more experience than do I on this topic.
I'm guessing you will need to have a backhoe dredge material from the pond, but without seeing the pond it is hard to say for sure.
