In 1962 the settling pond was dug just a few hundred metres downstream from the weir. The water was diverted before it travelled down the race to the fish farm. The gravel and sand would drop to the bottom and the water was reasonably clear. A screen was installed to catch rubbish to stop it going down the race.
