NANFA-- OT question on yard ponds?

Last year my parents started building a yard pond. It's maybe
16x10x2-3 feet. They didn't get it finished because my Mom fell
ill but Dad finished it this year. It has a waterfall into the pond and

a spillway that goes along a little run to a second pool. They had
no clue what they were doing but it turned out pretty neat. Now the
trouble starts with water quality and algae and all that. Since Mother
isn't able
to do the research as to how to make it work, it's sorta up to me.
Can anyone recommend a good website for a complete newbee
(me) so I can try and figure out how to fix his water? Thanks.
