Overland Park Pond needs Water

UPDATE – Water is flowing into the pond!! Thanks Paul, Alan, Ronnie, Casey and the powers that be !! 3/15/2016 5PM

Overland Park Pond needs Water.

Who do you call?  Help us out? We are trying to find out.  … Ronnies call to S.O.B.  Save Our Bass.

In July 2014 CPW planted 100 fingerling largemouth bass in Overland Park Pond after the fine restoration of the pond, $15,000 of it funded by Denver Trout Unlimited. We envisioned this great urban pond as a Gateway Fishery for kids. We didn’t envision it drying up. No river water since the Sept 2015. The bass must be gasping. We are down about 2.5 acre-ft or 840,000 gallons.
