Water is flowing out past overflow. Will see how long this lasts, if it continues through rainless summer months. My mind probably thought the water would go around the keyed dam underground. Its cool seeing it go above ground. Maybe both are happening?

We ended up doubling the amount of water going into the pond. The doubling was not needed, but it redirected water that was flooding the shop.
Since the water is not needed, i am wondering about adding dams to the terrace. Whether it be rocks(gabion) or some other form. Dam it so it infiltrates the ground. Limit what goes into pond......
