Draining the Pond - Final Day

We are finally close to the bottom of the pond.  As the water lowers,  the deepest part of the pond is becoming visible.    It where the intake for the pump is located.  It became clear why it stopped pumping.  There is a big pile of mud in the bottom.   The deepest part is just below a perch on the top where the owners children would dive in.   At that point, its about 12 feet deep.    The deepest part is about 4 feet deep and full of mud.   Stinky, smelly, thick, gross mud.
