The boards were placed in the dam late this season to allow the completion of repairs to the shoreline of Sargisson Beach. Many residents have asked to extend the season by keeping the boards in two weeks longer. The Groton Lakes Association agreed and removal of the boards will begin October 25th. This will allow for enough time to bring lake level down to the winter level before any ice forms.
About The Author
I have an academic background in Earth Sciences and Conservation and have worked for many years on the restoration of the Nashua River. First as a contract manager, I was responsible for allocating millions of dollars in Federal and State grant money used to build the infrastructure needed for the clean-up the river. Secondly, I participated in educating the communities within the Nashua River Watershed through public hearings outlining the steps needed to succeed and enlisting input from private citizens, public figures and commercial interests. As a private citizen I have worked in various capacities with the Town of Groton on water quality management issues in general and the many iterations of the Groton Lakes Association since the 1970s.
