Fawn Lake Dredging Among Community Preservation Committee Projects

Fawn Lake Dredging Among Community Preservation Committee Projects

By Elizabeth Hacala

The Community Preservation Committee met on Thursday, January 10 to hear several projects they will vote on for this year’s Town Meeting recommendations. The largest is a request to recommend a $1.8M bond authorization from CPA funds for hydraulic dredging of Fawn Lake.

Over the past several years there have been many attempts to address the fish kills and other water quality issues at Fawn Lake, including hydro-raking and herbicides. An ad hoc Fawn Lake committee was formed in 2015 to look at the lake and determine what if any steps could be taken. Selectman Margot Fleischman said the committee had looked at over a dozen possibilities from the most extreme to doing nothing and hydraulic dredging had risen as the best suggestion. The committee presented examples of how hydraulic dredging might be performed and said that the goal of the project was to have 60 percent open water at the lake. The project is expected to restore a significant portion of the lake to its original state and gain many decades of open water and a healthier environment for fish and other wildlife.

The inquiring resident noted that most plastic containers include a triangle with a number inside it to identify the type of plastic the container is made of but he couldn’t find any information on the Bedford DPW’s website or in the annual brochure explaining what plastics can and cannot be recycled.
