Warner’s Pond is in an advanced state of eutrophication which has resulted in a number of undesirable conditions including decreased water depths, widespread growths of aquatic invasive plants, and impaired recreational opportunities. The Natural Resources Division hosted two community meetings this spring to provide information and gather feedback on alternatives to restore the ecological health and recreational opportunities of the Warner's Pond system. The Division has also had an Alternatives Analysis Report developed to evaluate modified dredging, dam removal, and no action. This report recommends dam removal as the Preferred Alternative, and the Division will further evaluate this option, respond to community survey comments, and continue community outreach over the next several months.
