Consultant will present proposal to lower the dam

Tuesday, April 17
7:00 p.m.
Bolton Town Hall

As you are probably aware by now, the Massachusetts Office of Dam Safety has determined that the Fyfeshire Dam (the lower dam) in the Fyfeshire Conservation Area has been determined by the Massachusetts Office of Dam Safety to be a “Significant Hazard Dam in an Unsafe Condition.” There is a proposal on the table to lower the dam crest. We believe this will improve dam safety while keeping the ponds intact. The Bolton Conservation Commission invites anyone who is interested to attend a meeting this coming Tuesday, where Engineering Consultant Christopher Cullen, of Fuss and O’Neil, will present this new proposal.

Please come if you can. The Conservation Commission has submitted a warrant article for the Annual Town Meeting (May 7) to lower the dam crest of the lower dam in the Fyfeshire Conservation Area. That means (I think) the people of Bolton will be asked to vote on this proposal. Here is your chance to learn more and ask questions.

For a more detailed description of the proposal, see our posting New Alternative Would Keep Fyfeshire Ponds Intact.
