Sellers have constructed a 140’x 140’ pond measuring 15ft deep. It’s lined with bentonite which, according to Water Resources, is an acceptable pond liner. The storage capacity is estimated at 1 million gallons.
Please see remarks below from Water Master, Lanaya Blakely and refer additional questions to her directly. If the pond is lined to prevent groundwater infiltration and there is a berm around it to prevent surface water runoff from filling it, the water can be used for any purpose, per ORS 537.141. A pond constructed in such manner may be filled with water captured from an artificial impervious surface (roof).
Buyer must do their own due diligence on options for irrigation.
