LSC Stormwater Master Plan Meeting Summary

1 Sep 2023 3:09 PM | Jerremy Jones (Administrator)

Hey there LSC. Wow - what a fantastic meeting this morning!

It was great to see so many folks who care about the lake joining in on the discussion about the Lake St. Catherine Stormwater Master Plan (SWMP) this morning at the Wells Town Hall. There were 40 attendees in total!

12 projects from the SWMP were selected and will move ahead into the design phase. You can see a plotting of the projects on a Google map on the LSC Stormwater Master Plan Page here: https://lakestcatherine.org/stormwater-master-plan

Projects selected were: 

• CT-1 (Clayton Tract)
• RT30-1 (RT 30, near Otto's)
• CP-1 (end of Cones Point Road)
• LL-1 (Lochlea Lane)
• WL-1 (West Lake Road, south of the Lighthouse)
• WL-6 (West Lake Road, near Idylwild)
• CD-1 (Channel Drive)
• FCR-1 (revisit), FCR-2, FCR-3, FCR-4, IVL-1 (grouping of issues on Ferncliff Road)

Although noted as separate projects, the grouping on Ferncliff will be looked at together in scope, as will the multiple issues that have been observed on Channel Drive.

This was an extremely productive meeting, and we thank all attendees for your participation, input and enthusiasm to make this project a success! Also, many folks that were unable to attend wrote in to share issues they have observed, which have also been noted.

We'd also like to thank the town of Wells for the use of the Town Hall meeting room, and Hilary, Sadie, Sophia, and Evan (from Poultney Mettowee Natural Resources Conservation District and Fitzgerald Environmental) for all the work they put forth in preparation for the meeting. 

Finally, we'd like to thank Don Preuss & Paul Woodruff from the Wells Select Board, members of the town road crews from Wells & Poultney, Senator Terry Williams, Poultney Community Development Director Sarah Pelkey, Poultney Town Manager Paul Donaldson, and Vermont DEC Watershed Planner Angie Allen for attending and contributing.

It's going to take all of us contributing and working on these and other important lake issues to make progress - so it was just so great to see so many folks participating - THANK YOU!

We'll keep you up-to-date on this and all other projects as they move forward. We'll look to have another gathering soon to discuss the Lake St. Catherine Watershed Action Plan.

Enjoy this beautiful Labor Day Weekend...
