JULY 25, 2006 This is pretty much it for digging and pushing soil. We are back at the front edge of the building site pad, surveying one big thirsty pondsite. In an effort to contain our excitement and apprehension, we are considering the fill-up period to be a 2 year wait. My best estimates have us at about 13 - 14 million gallons to be full. Now, it's up to Mother Nature.
