What is the density of water in pounds/cubic foot? I think the conversion factor for cubic yards to cubic feet is 27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard.

Convert 150 yd^3 to cubic feet.

Then mass = volume x density.

Or if you can find the density of water in pounds/yd^3, then

150 x that number = mass in pounds.
