Head deeper into the local newspaper, the Worcester Telegram, for an article on our “cherished pond and dam” (yes you got that right! Manchaug is a cherished pond!), which recaps the situation arrived at by our dam owner this past summer and fall: the development of an “unofficial agreement” with another local potential buyer for the dam, the state’s suggestion for an ownership transfer with an endowment, the refusal of an offer made in good-faith by a Manchaug Pond non-profit, cooperation by the town for development of a hydroelectric power bylaw, and the dam owner’s continuance of the breaching process.
