Pond construction this year? Call 811, the hotline for JULIE (Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators)). Call no more than two weeks, but at least 48 hours, before you begin digging (not including weekends and holidays). Utilities will then mark their underground pipes, wires and cables with stakes, flags or paint.

MPKS is a not for profit, hobbyist organization whose members share a common interest in koi (Japanese colored carp), goldfish, water gardens and backyard ponds. There are currently about 500 members, mostly in Chicago and surrounding counties as well as Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri and as far away as Hawaii. MPKS meets on the 3rd Friday of the month from January through October. You do not have to be a member to attend.

Please visit our help section (Letters to the Club) and have a look at the various Articles.

This website hopes to provide an information repository for all who are interested in any facet of the hobby. See our Site Map for details. Visitors, please note - we are in Zones 5a and 5b. If you live in other climate zones, you will need to adjust accordingly. Residents of warmer climates: Gloating is unseemly.
