[permaculture] Conserving water in ponds

A report has recently been released by the 
Oklahoma Climatological Survey predicting that as 
a result of climate change, droughts in Oklahoma 
will increase in frequency and severity.  As a 
result, there is a discussion going on among the 
producers-members of the Oklahoma Food Coop over 
mitigation strategies.  One issue that has come up 
is "conserving water in ponds", presumably by 
reducing evaporation.

Any thoughts about that?  Would aquatic plants 
that cover the surface of the water help?
