<< thanks for mentioning it. I am on a long sloping hill. how to level it.
this is my biggest problem with making ponds in my yard. does anyone have
any advice. >>

Are you using a liner or hard plastic? I don't recall where I read this, but
there was a warning to be careful putting liners on steep slopes. A hard
rain will force water _under_ the liner and push it up. Not at all sure this
is correct or that I understand the physics involved, but worth being
