We are in good shape for having a broken gate on the dam – 14 inches down from full as of this morning! Whitin Reservoir, another dam controlled by Guilford, is down 12″ without a broken gate.
Guildford reports that only 3 boards have been taken off the spillway and they are waiting for the state Office of Dam Safety to tell them when to take another board out.
The MPA has expressed to Guilford’s headquarters our concern that a significant drop in the water level will negatively effect wells and septic systems. They are talking with the state and conservation commission about putting up a temporary structure to minimize the impact.
Keeping you posted 🙂
