Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone had noticed any ponds in the North Dallas area turning over? Is it too early for that? This will be my first fall in North Dallas, and have just noticed the last couple weeks the bike has severely dropped off when I thought it was getting ready to really pick up. Thanks for the info

I'm not sure that ponds stratify enough to turn over like lakes do. Usually turnover happens after it cools off for a while. With temps pushing 100 now I don't think much turning over is happening. The full moon might have been a factor.

Just about every pond will turn over. The ones that do not have some way to circulate water will be worse and usually will have some kind of a fish kill. This has already happened in a couple of ponds in Allen.

When I say turn over, I sort of misspoke. I was actually referring to several large aquatic vegetation kills. Seems like there are tons of dead, slimy looking flotillas of algae and plants. Do the plants typically die in Sept here?

Yes, please define "turn over."

Addendum: All serious answer accepted, all serious answers will probably be right.

I live in Desoto, local "wild" (if you can even call it that) pond has started to turn over. About 80% to 90% of the nasty top stuff died off.

The park 1/4 mile away that gets stocked and has a fountain on the other hand has a sever algae infestation still. That park had to get the scum raked off and was even closed because of how bad it was. I think carp will be the only way to fix it.
