Although it won't be accurate, you can get a general idea of it by doing the following (in inches):

1. Find the area of the top portion of the pond (the average width x the average length x the height of the top portion.
2. Find the area of the bottom portion of the pond (the average width x the average length x the height of the bottom portion.
3. Add the two areas together to find the total area of the pond.
4. Divide the total area of the pond by 231 to get the number of gallons.
