We have begun detailed work on the pond design and have taken advice from the Freshwater Habitats Trust who, coincidentally, have the dragonfly as their emblem. We have also taken water samples from the stream and from a spring, which we may have to use to top up the pond. These samples are being analysed at a lab in Wakefield. As the pond will be lined the main supply will be rainfall. Liversedge rainfall is about 33 inches per annum. As the maximum depth of the pond will be about 27 inches there will be nearly enough. Not forgetting evaporation of course. Of course if we do not reach our funding target it won't happen !
