Beach Pond Water Draw Down

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has approved the Town of Voluntown’s request to draw down Beach Pond two feet during the 2017/2018 winter season.

The two feet drawdown will commence on or about October 30, 2017.  The drawdown will restore to normal water surface elevation by April 2, 2018. However, there is always a risk that refilling may not be achieved by the target date due to unusually dry weather conditions. the next anticipated drawdown at Beach Pond, based on the previously established drawdown policy would occur during the 2020/2021 winter season.

The cost of this drawdown service to the town is estimated to be about $2100.
