Well, Guilford and R.H. White have been at the dam all day! We checked in with them a little after 7 a.m., a few times during the day and again before 4 p.m. when divers were again coming out of the water.
The news isn’t good. Seems there was debris near the gate but that is not what caused the damage – the shaft of the gate is broken. Old age. Can’t just order parts for something like that. They have to be made. Guilford has 200 sandbags positioned to reduce the flow of water out of the lake. Fuddy will do his best to keep the water at this level – using the boards to lower in case of heavy rain/flood conditions.
Repairs will be made in the fall when the water level is taken down.
