Water Level

Water Level

Below is a brief summary of water level requirements per the lease between the town and the owners of the pond. Keep in mind there are many variables which can alter these target levels such as whether there is enough water flow upstream and downstream, flooding, droughts etc.

Basically Mother Nature dictates a lot of the water level. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any other questions you may have.

September Water Level

Provided that there is enough water flowing into the pond to sustain it, the lease calls for the Pond to remain full during the month of September barring a hurricane emergency for which there would be a lot of warning and communication.
