Nine red overflow

We are very close to having a pond again!! We had to abandon the old overflow and cut the metal culvert pipe back far enough to ensure the pond would not seep into the new connection. We capped the old overflow (shown in the last photo as a faint circle), inserted a PVC pipe into the old culvert, and prepared the pipe to receive the vertical overflow pipe. We will seal the PVC into the metal culvert with roofing tar. Once the vertical pipe goes into the white elbow on the right, we will calculate to height of the water with a transit level and cut the pipe off at the desired height. We wanted to have this job done by the end of next week, so we are ahead of schedule.
This will be a huge spring monkey off our backs!
