CALLING ALL TO ATTEND: Sutton Conservation Commission Mtg – 45 Oak St/BlueWave Solar, Douglas

April 3 @ 6:30 pm

Restoration of Manchaug Pond needs to happen now!

The Sutton Conservation Commission meeting on  April 3, 2024 at 6:30 pm will include an update of an item affecting Manchaug Pond – construction site of BlueWave Solar 45 Oak St, Douglas, a project causing environmental impacts to the lakes and wetlands.  Significant runoff and pumping from the construction site has caused significant sediment and large volumes of sediment-laden water to impact Manchaug Pond, Stevens Pond and the greater Mumford River, as well as neighboring properties, the watershed, and roads from Oak St and Parker Court, Douglas to Holt and Torrey Roads, Sutton.

The Sutton Conservation Commission has issued an Enforcement Order which required the development of a Restoration Plan for impacted areas. Manchaug Pond Foundation request BlueWave be required to implement measures ASAP as outlined in the January 3, 2024 Restoration Plan before the recreation season begins to ensure public safety and with spring protect the lake ecology – fisheries and wetlands – impacted by the sediment and phosphorus.

With 6 PFAS chemicals out of 40 tested found at Infiltration Basin 5 two months after the basin flowed its sediment-laden water into Manchaug Pond, we request followup testing of the lake water and fish to ensure health and safety and confidence that our water resources is safe.
