Water Volume of a Square or Rectangular Pond
Length X Width X Avg. Depth X 7.5 = Gallons
Water Volume of a Round Pond
(r is the radius- the radius is the distance from the center to the edge)
r x r = X, Multiply the X above by 3.14 = A
Multiply A by the average depth of the pond, then by 7.5 = Gallons
(One acre foot = 325,851 Gallons)
