NOTICE: FLOOD INFORMATION “ALERT” To residences of Long Pond, Assawompset Pond, and all members of the “Long Pond Association”
Please be aware there is a group of concerned citizens that live on the ponds in Lakeville and Freetown and have suffered damage from the recent flooding. While a lot has been said of the record rainfall and the vegetation in the Nemasket River, we know that much of the damages suffered around these Ponds were the results of man made decisions. If these Ponds were managed as they were for over the past twenty five years to their appropriate levels through the dams in Lakeville and Middleboro, the damages that occurred with these spring rains would not have happened. The Ponds would have been able to absorb this water.
We are actively pursuing policies through Town/City offices and State Representatives to make sure this never happens again.
