I was just wondering if anyone here has tackled a job similar to this. A private club wants to put in lake as small as possible to water ski on. I think it only has to be less than 10 feet deep. The minimum length would be around 1500', and wide enough just to have a straight run with turnarounds at each end, obviously. Besides the usual permits, what are there soil test that need to be done, and do you need to worry that it could leak, or not hold the water like some ponds do? I've never worked on a project like this, and I just want to see if somebody would have any advice. If any of you have, what's a ballpark time frame that something like this would take, assuming you had 5 operators and the proper equipment. The unlimited truck drivers hauling the dirt out would be separate from the 5 guys running equipment. I know this is kind of off the wall, I'm just curious what you guys think.
