The top swale will empty into the pond on heavy rain events. Once full the pond spills over opposite the dam into the middle swale. This swale takes water to the north fence line and discharges into the bottom swale. After filling, the bottom swale will discharge on the north fence line and into an old miners ditch before going to the creek.
