Return of the Stinking River

For everyone who didn't see the Stinking River, here it is. You can see that the river flows from the Stinking Pond on my neighbors property. It actually comes from the road and the corn field south of us. All the soil is about 6 inches deep with limestone underneath, so drainage is slow.If it rains enough, like yesterday, to saturate the soil and we get a heavy downpour the pond fills up, and then it slowly drains across our property.

Talked again to my backhoe guy, Tim, about adding a negative slope to the frontage ditch to send the river along the road and straight to the culvert. I will add another picture to show where the rest of the water goes.
