• WRECK POND PROJECT COMPLETED – NO MORE BACTERIA-RIDDEN FLOODING

    by  • November 22, 2016 • News

    The completion of a 600 foot-long concrete culvert on Wreck Pond, Spring Lake will ease flooding and beach closures in towns adjacent to the Pond. Residents have for years been subject to flooding and the bacteria–ridden water seeping from the Pond.   The culvert will act as an inlet that can be managed by the opening and closing of a gate during severe weather events. It will help restore tidal flows between the ocean and the Pond, making it easier for fish to flow back and forth and improving water quality. It will also allow water to release from the pond quickly ad to control ocean water from coming in.
