Millbrook Dam Erosion Control

Pictured is the east side of the pond as steps are being taken for erosion control.  The concrete under layer that looks a bit like grey ravioli will prevent the bank from giving way in the event the water level in the pond rises above the bank and flows over the edge.  Should this occur, only the topsoil is vulnerable to washout.  This week the banks will be hydro-seeded but the fence will remain in place until the grass has taken root, which is expected in mid-August, leaving Zucchini Festival organizers lots of time to set the stage for this year’s return event tentatively scheduled for September 8th.
