ATTENTION PACHAUG POND RESIDENTS
Notice Regarding October 9th
During an inspection and survey of the Pachaug Pond dam structure conducted on September 26, 2017 by Macchi Engineers, LLC, it was noted that there was masonry missing and more seepage observed at the downstream face of the spillway than previously noted in recent inspections. Based on these observations, CT DEEP State Dams recommends undertaking immediate temporary repairs while permanent design plans are completed.
The proposed temporary repair would include drainage (pumping) of the stilling basin to create a safe working platform, replacement (if possible/feasible) of missing masonry with on-site stone masonry and filling of any other visible voids with cementitious repair mortar. On the dam crest, grouting the voids behind and between existing capstones to the extent possible. A drawdown of 3.5 feet will be necessary to facilitate the temporary repair to the downstream face and spillway capstones.
It is proposed that the pond be drawn down starting October 9, 2017 and the drawdown maintained through the winter, with a target of closing the gate in late March or early April 2018. Monitoring of seepage will occur over the winter. If no significant changes are noted, the pond level will be allowed to raise to the dam crest at which time another inspection will be performed to monitor the results of the temporary repairs. If the temporary repair is determined to be satisfactory, the spillway will be allowed to draw water over the crest.
The target to implement construction of the permanent repair is fall of 2018.
Local residents with boats on Pachaug Pond should consider removing them prior to the proposed slow drawdown starting on Monday October 9th.
A MESSAGE FROM THE HEALTH & SAFETY COMMITTEE
Drive Safely in Wet Weather
Fast-moving storms with lightning and heavy rains can quickly create flash floods.
If you are caught driving in a thunderstorm, please keep the following in mind:
weather. In case of tornadoes, seek shelter immediately. If the road is wet due
to rain, reduce your speed and drive carefully, especially on curves.
remember that one of the most dangerous times to drive is soon after it
begins to rain, as oils on the roadway make for slick conditions. Waiting a few
minutes, rather than rushing to your destination, can be a safer plan when it is
before you attempt to cross it. Do not attempt to cross if the water is moving.
