Drain Pond

Drain Pond is just beyond the lookout sign.
The water in this pond comes from a drain along the lower boundary of the kahikatea block, preventing water flowing into the neighbour's property.
This is underground seepage water from the flow of water in the kahikatea block.
Water from the Drain Pond overflow enters Big Pond, the pond in the far distant background.
The pond on the right is Spring Pond and the water flowing into it comes from Triangle pond (see aerial view of damsite block)
that is surface water from the kahikatea block.

 

This is a closer view of Drain Pond.
The pond includes a small island that is featured in the pic below.
