Refill has begun!
Due to the unusually warm weather we had in January and the complete ice out we experienced, it was decided to keep the lake level low a few extra weeks to allow for the colder weather return, to freeze the exposed lake bed and for ice to reform, so that when we started the refill, the ice could do its job and scour the lake bed.
Current depth at the spillway is ~4-ft (+/- a few inches). Todd has closed the gate to allow refill to start while allowing enough outflow to protect the species downstream.
Be on the lookout for the spring newsletter!
Solitude: 2016 Year-End Report
Nov. 29 Update: From Todd Girard: "The pool elevation was perfect at 48” the gate is open to 3 cranks with flow visible at the outlet. I would not recommend making any adjustments to the dam, even with this precipitation the pool elevation will stabilize out in a short time. The draw down is going great, we are just waiting for the freeze up. The key task is not to have the pool elevation go below 48” and negatively impact drinking wells. Refill will begin in January as always."

SHARE THE SAME FRONT YARD
Lake is a freshwater lake located in Charlton, Massachusetts. It
is 116 acres and primarily used by its residents for fishing, swimming
and water skiing.
The Glen Echo
Improvement Association, made up entirely of volunteers, was founded
to promote good fellowship among its members; to promote the civic
welfare of Glen Echo Lake Community; to establish and maintain improvements
in and about the community; to improve the ecology of Glen Echo
Lake; to preserve the rights and privileges of residents; and to
do things necessary and incidental to these purposes permissible
under Chapter 180 of the General Laws. It is also our goal to educate
lake residents, and provide a social forum for members to express
concerns and to share information. Monthly meetings, held during
the summer, determine our direction by providing an opportunity
for everyone living on Glen Echo to discuss any topic regarding
the lake. All voices are heard. You need not be a member of the
association to address the group. You do need to be a member of
the Association to vote. Meeting dates, times,
and location are announced on GEIA bulletin boards around the
lake and by our newsletter. Please
come to a meeting and learn more about us.
