Exploration of Milfoil Extraction Opportunities at Dewey's Pond
Updates from the Town Manager's Significant Activity report:
The Parks & Rec Department held a meeting with representatives of the Friends of Dewey’s Pond. The discussion centered around future grant and milfoil extraction opportunities. We have contacted Solitude Lake Management who is currently working with Quechee Lakes Land Owners Association’s Lake Pinneo. We have asked if they could provide a site visit to Dewey’s Pond and provide suggestions for future work. Solitude Lake Management provides specialized wetland and aquatic weed control solutions. We hope to have them here this fall for a discussion about long term solutions to the watermilfoil problem. Additionally, I spoke with Ethan Phelps, Vermont State Parks, about the lease between the Army Corp and the State. They believe a lease will be signed before the New Year.
