BTDT. Watered from a very small stream for years - only enough for
one head and I had to watch close to shut the pump down when the hole
I dug emptied. Mud? Yes, every spring or after any heavy rain I had
to dig it out.
Have you checked how much water is flowing in that stream? From the
description it doesn't sound like 18 gpm.
