Take Time to Bail the Boat. Please!!

This is the scene at a local Manchaug Pond campground’s dock/marina where a boat sank last Thursday spilling gas & oil into the lake.  While the MPF Board of Directors was holding their monthly meeting, the Sutton Fire Department was rushing to the scene.

Please be sure to bail your boat when it rains!

Two days earlier, Lake Singletary was the site of a spill when a boat sank… the story is told that as the owner and a neighbor worked with heavy equipment to bring the boat up, if flipped over … spilling gas and oil into that lake.

We’ve had over 2 1/2 ” of rain just this afternoon…. Please be sure to check you boat. Bail often.

One spill can have a big impact on the water quality of the lake.
