How much water is in the pond next to the parking lot?

Thank you for thinking like a Hydrologist as you wondered and wandered through the Rio Salado Restoration Site on this Discovery Journey. Your scientific conclusion may have included this information:

Rio Salado Restoration Area Map The sides of the pond are 286 feet and 239 feet long. The surface area is 34,177 square feet = 286 ft. x 239 ft. Since the pond is 25 feet deep, its volume = 854,425 cubic feet = 34,177 ft2 x 25 ft. This is equal to 6.4 million gallons = 854,425 ft3 x 7.48 gal/ft3
