Pond on Raine property
looking northeast at pond on Raine property Looking northeast at pond on Raine property in late October 2014. The mountain above is characterized by natural springs, so this pond is refreshed from beneath throughout the year. Extensive rockwork provides a stable border around the pond and provides a spillway to catch excessive hillside run-off during the spring.
looking southwest at pond on Raine property Looking southwest at pond on Raine property in late October 2014. This is probably as low as the water ever gets; the pond should be full in the spring and summer. The water is clear and not stagnate; algae is not observed.
water drainage from Raine property into Nine Mile Creek Rockwork has been engineered to provide a spillway at the base of the hillside behind the building lots, which leads to this culvert that empties into Nine Mile Creek during spring run-off.
