Due to the consistent rainfall this spring resulting in higher ground water levels, a board will be removed from the dam outfall which will lower the lake level a few inches in subsequent weeks.
This dock has been in the 2nd basin at 25 Worcester Ave a few weeks. The owner is requested to retrieve it. Let us know if you need help.
