Waterbury Reservoir Update

(hope to have another update after 4/26/03 mtg.)

The State of Vermont began an earlier than planned drawdown of Waterbury Reservoir last summer based on a safety concern to reinforce the dam. The tournament normally held on Waterbury Reservoir is being held on Wrightsville Reservoir until work on the dam is complete. The water level was approximately 45′ below normal level throughout the summer of 2001. The reservoir was significantly reduced in size but still usable. The latest (but not yet guaranteed accurate) information is that the reservoir will be lowered an additional 25′ this summer reducing the surface area to less than half of last summer.
