There will upcoming free classes for members. The D.E.P. hold classes on plant identification and lake management issues. These classes will be announced when the weather gets warmer.
We have contracted with aquatic control technologies of Mass. They are in the process of getting the necessary D.E.P. permits. Check out their web site. The weed infestation is severe in the Northern section of the pond, but it is localized and treatable. An interesting aside to the weed problem is that the weeds were analyzed by the D.E.P. and the weeds are a hybrid and came from an aquarium dump. It is common for well meaning people to dump their fish and other contents into lakes and ponds. You can now see the catastrophic results.
We have finally resolved to spillway issue!! The town will handle the spillway. They will be lowering the water level on or about October 15th each year. On or about the following April15th, the water will be raised to last year's level. If you have a water level issue, please do not take matters in your own hands. Please contact us and we will approach the Town if you have a legitimate issue. Our Email address is listed here.
Every day someone says "what can I do to help?" the answer is: to get involved. The association is only as good as the membership. Working together, we can preserve Moosup Pond for our children and beyond.
Urgent Update on D.E.P. Grant request!!
The D.E.P. did not award any monies for plant eradication and sent the monies back to the general fund. They claim to have no monies for any treatment programs. Stand by to stand by.
