Acreage and Volume Calculations
Many lake and pond owners get confused when calculating
acreage and volume so we've made it easy.
If you are trying to figure out ACREAGE (of a square or
rectangle), multiply the Length (in feet) by Width (in feet) =
Square Footage. Then divide Square Footage by 43,560 (amount
of square feet in 1 acre) = Acreage.
Example: I have a rectangular pond that is 100'
long by 50' wide. 100' x 50' = 5,000 square feet. Then
5,000 / 43,560 = 0.11 acres
If you are trying to figure out ACREAGE (of a circle), multiply
the Length (in feet) by Width (in feet) = Square
Footage. Then multiply Square footage by 0.8 = Adjusted
Square Footage. Finally divide your Adjusted Square Footage
by 43,560 = Acreage (of circle).
Example: I have a circular pond that is 100' long
by 100' wide. 100' x 100' = 10,000 square feet. Then 10,000 x
0.8 = 8,000 adjusted square feet. Finally, 8,000 / 43,560 =
If you are trying to figure out ACRE-FEET, multiply the Acreage
by the Average Depth (in feet) = Acre-feet
Example: I have a 1.25 acre pond with a 6'
average depth. 1.25 x 6' = 7.5 acre-feet.
If you are trying to figure out GALLONS, multiply
acre-feet by 325,829 (gallons in 1 acre-foot) =
Example: I have 7.5 acre-feet of water. 7.5
x 325,829 = 2,443,717 gallons.
