STATE OF CONNECTICUT PRESS RELEASES, DEEP & PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICES
ATTENTION HOPEVILLE AND ASHLAND POND RESIDENTS
Notice Regarding Drawdown
DEEP is drawing down Pachaug Pond to lower the level below the spillway (up to 24 inches) to allow for the temporary repairs to the spillway. The gate has been open all winter but a very cold, wet season has kept the water level high. This has prevented the contractor from performing the necessary work. It is expected that the contractor will begin work next Wednesday (4/18), weather permitting. Pachaug Pond is currently 12 inches down below the spillway. The repairs are expected to last 10 to 14 days after which the gate will be closed. Any questions can be directed to me at (860) 424-3892 or email@example.com.
Griswold Weed Study Committee - At our last meeting on October 25, 2017 the committee voted to suspend monthly meetings of the Griswold Weed Study Committee. There has been no interest or involvement by property owners from Glasgo Pond, Hopeville Pond or Ashland pond. Until such a time as there is an interest in controlling invasive weeds, monthly meetings are now suspended - Thomas Giard Jr., Chairman

A MESSAGE FROM THE HEALTH & SAFETY COMMITTEE
Special Message from Griswold Health and Safety During these heavy snow events
Be prepared for power outages and possible flooding.
Stay away from downed power lines, always assume they are live. If you see a downed power line, call 911 immediately.
If you plan to use a generator in the event of power outages, be sure that it has been installed by a licensed electrician.
Improper generator installation creates a significant hazard to those working on the electric system during or after a storm.
To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, generators must be placed outside, away from doors, windows and air vents.
