Reservoir drawdown to begin Oct. 15

Hudson-large-web-iconHudson/Marlborough – The Fort Meadow Commission has announced he City of Marlborough and Town of Hudson will begin a drawdown of Fort Meadow Reservoir Tuesday, Oct. 15. The four-foot drawdown will continue for 15-20 days. The lake level will be kept down through the winter and begin refilling March 3, 2014.

The purpose of this year’s drawdown is to allow for control of invasive weeds and the Asian Clam, removal of sand from storm drains, and repair of walls and beaches. While no permit is needed to remove weeds, residents must obtain a permit to repair walls, add sand to beaches, or conduct any further construction or expansion. Residents can obtain a permit for this work from their local Conservation Commission. Residents can reach the Marlborough Conservation Commission at 508-460-3768; Hudson residents can contact the Hudson Conservation Commission at 978-562-2020.

To report any issues or potential problems with drainage pipes entering the lake, contact Tom Temple, assistant commissioner of operations at 508-624-6910, ext. 7200.

As in the past, residents are required to remove their docks from the water for the winter.

For further information, contact your local commission at the number listed above or the Fort Meadow Commission at 508-481-0590.
