Basically there is just no where for the water to go. I've thought of digging some swales and berms just to give the water somewhere to flow to and maybe the then the water wouldn't be stagnant? The ground around the stream is already "floating" so you need to wear high boots when walking in the area. This thread gives me something to think about. I was already thinking about adding willows to the area.
