Wow very nice Yury, Is this a farm in your area ? Did you help with the design or work with the crew?  It looks like there are several farms doing the same work.

This looks great !  Extremely promising !

If you could plant lots and lots of trees just as fast as you built the ponds, you would have all the elements for a paradise spot !

I note the waterlogging in the rectangular areas surrounded by berms.  I guess that the berms themselves contributed to the trapped water, in your flat landscape.  You could turn that into an intentional wetland...
