Default How do you design a pond that won't overflow in heavy rain?

I am planning to dig a small pond probably about 8 ft by 6 ft. It will have
a small waterfall and a skimmer. In heavy rain, is there a way to keep the
pond from overflowing?

Well, really no. You just have to plan for where it will overflow.

Yep, either have a slightly lower end, or better, for more control, put in
an over flow pipe. For my lily pond we plan to build it into the filter
barrels since it is a formal pond, from the filter barrels overflow can run
out onto the lawn. ~ jan
