I have a location on my property in central Wisconsin that seems to be near the water table and may be a great place for a pond. The issue is it's in a swamp with trees, etc. Most of the summer there is standing water, except during the real dry periods when water is only standing in lower parts of the swamp. Has anyone ever tried digging a pond in an area like this? Would permitting be an issue? It's about 2.5 acres in total. Attached are some pictures during the driest point during the summer. Appreciate any feedback you have.
