    yeah im with you sean on lowering a machine down into it and dipping it out with an excavator. id atleast dig it out with a mini and load it into a truck, even if I couldn't get something down in there to push it to the mini. digging all that out by hand with wheel barrows sounds tiresome.

    Can not get any big equipment close to this pond, building is too close along with electrical lines. It is 100 ft to a place where we can drop a roll off container. Hardly room to use wheel barrows.

    If run off from parking lot and resturant is hazardous.

    Big equipment in this area:dizzy: I was more interested in what to use to address the smell immediately I know how to dig it out we have done that about 5 times over years it is pretty simple get a darn shovel throw it out and then in wheel barrow.

    Please close this thread out. I wanted to see if there was something better than lime to but on decaying stuff.

    Don't close it yet because I'm sure they can answer that question as well.

    I'm interested
