    One other thing, his pond wasn't all that deep, about 4' I would guess, It was big though, probably 2 acres, had one area about 6'. I don't think it ever froze deeper than 4-6" Heck, most of Utah lake is only 10' deep.

    I'm leaning towards a depth of 5' with a trench in there that runs to like 8'.

    I may rain on your parade here a bit, but from what I have experienced a lot of UT is very touchy about water rights, even if your pond is only going to be a tenth of an acre or so. You could save yourself some real headaches by checking first. I remember being shocked at the price of water rights over near Heber.

    What would I need the water rights for? Once it's filled, it's filled. Is there more to it than that?
