Enlarging the tank, stage 1

Our tank is completely dry now. Taking advantage of that, we decided to enlarge and deepen it. A nice friend with a big dozer is helping us out. He tore down our bridge to make way for a wide expansion. Mike built the bridge when the kids were little and I will miss it. They fished from it so many times and "fell off of it" into the tank when they got bigger.Mike will re-use the wood and build something else-probably part of the deck we plan to build on this bank.

He works on the shallow end. The depth was only a couple of feet here and that doesn't hold much water. Our goal is to collect as much water as possible. I think maybe the depth will be close to 12-15 feet when he is done.
Stage 2 will be shown tomorrow!

That looks completely overwhelming to me, but won't it be wonderful when it's done?

I am eager to see the finished project, but not near as eager as you!
