Abstract: Many Missouri ponds are watershed ponds that rely on surface runoff to maintain proper water levels. Continued drought combined with high temperatures can have devastating effects on fish ponds. Drought conditions tend to reveal poor pond construction and magnify the potential for a fish kill. Even ponds that have been properly designed and constructed within a watershed can have problems.
