Pond Calculator App – for pond management – fish farming

One of the most common problems in pond management is over-estimation of pond size. This tool allows the user to quickly and easily calculate the surface area of any shaped pond and then calculate the number of acre feet, all without having to do any math.

Good morning Harrison County!

We are happy to be back at it with a fully staffed office! There are a few things we would like to let you know when joining us back at the Harrison County Extension Office.

There are hand sanitizing stations set up by the front door downstairs and also in the hall on the second floor.

We have placed blue "X's" on the floor at 6' apart down the hall just as a reminder to keep a safe distance. We ask you wear a mask coming in and out of the building.

Our meeting room is limited to ten people currently. If you need to schedule a meeting please call the office to get back on the schedule.

We would like to keep everyone as safe and comfortable during this crazy time.

If you have and questions or concerns feel free to give us a call in the office. 903-935-8413
