The report is in… we’re only 6″ below full! Fuddy calls it “amazing” to remain this constant. He says we were 8″ below, but we are up with that last rain and some run-off from the watershed. Of course the gate remains closed with nothing going out except through the crack between the spillway boards. With this heat, we usually get evaporation taking us down, but not yet.
For those of us new to all this, you might ask … What does Fuddy mean by the term “below full”? Well, Manchaug Pond is considered “full” when the water level is to the top of the spillway boards. If 6″ of the board is showing, then we are 6″ below full. Simple as that.
