The upside-down dock in the middle of the photo below floated to 116 North Shore Drive. If you are the owner, please come claim it, and let us know if you need help getting it back home.
Also note that the dock that was spotted floating in the first basin earlier this week is now tied to a tree at 174 Barton Road. It will be removed from the lake soon if it is not claimed.
Both Hudson and Stow have town-wide cleanup days scheduled for this coming weekend:

Happy Earth Day! In the next week let’s pick up the debris accumulated during the winter along the roads in our neighborhoods and put it out with our residential trash. Also, this Saturday, April 27, is the annual Stow town-wide cleanup day so Stow residents can register and obtain free designated yellow bags and gloves at the lower common from 8 am to 12 noon, and the highway department will pick up the bags the following Monday if they are left along major roads. Be sure to wear bright colored clothing for safety. Many thanks for your participation!
Update: This dock has now drifted to the very north end of the first basin. Owner, please identify and we will help return it to you. A long wooden dock with a step has found its way to Pine Bluffs just north of the town beach. We may be able to help the owner retrieve it if it is identified.
This approx. 4 x 4 ft gray plastic-wood dock section (probably an insert for an aluminum dock frame) drifted to the Stow town beach a month ago and is waiting for the owner to reclaim. It is now accessible on one of the beach floating docks on shore.
Boards have recently been replaced in the dam outfall and with the rain today the lake level has gone up about 1.5″ already. The lake can be expected to rise another 10″ in the next few weeks, with timing depending on rainfall. Be aware that time is trickling away for shoreline work at low water levels. If you are thinking about working on your shoreline, please check with your town’s Conservation Commission to make sure you have any necessary permits before you start the job. Contact the Stow Conservation Commission at 978) 897-8615, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Hudson Conservation Commission can be reached at (978) 562-2948, or email@example.com.
The Lake Boon Association will hold its annual meeting on Sunday June 2, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. at the Pompositticut Community Center, 509 Great Road, in Stow.
