The Mississippian age Hartselle Formation, in White County, is a thick sandstone layer. On the north end of Milksick Mountain the Hartselle sandstone forms a local plateau with several naturally occurring water bodies in shallow depressions. I have always heard them referred to as sag ponds. The only definition of sag pond I can find says the origin is tectonic. These most likely do not have a tectonic origin. I still call them sag ponds. The shrubs growing in the middle are common buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis).
