Construction began last fall but was halted when a natural spring was discovered under the pond halfway through the excavation. The pond, which will include a liner in order to make it an environmentally friendly recirculating pond, had to be reengineered to ensure the spring did not push it up. A solution was found and the construction was postponed until warmer, dryer weather allowed it to be drained and re-dug. Construction is anticipated for completion in August.
