The Dam is Repaired!

We have completed our long struggle to repair our dam. Cole Construction really did a superior job rebuilding our dam. The dam should last 50+ years. The repair came in about $900 over budget because of unexpected trouble with the sandbagged cofferdam. Thanks to every who worked to make this all possible!

Beginning at the Annual Meeting on July 7, 2007, the Dam Project was discussed extensively. A temporary plate was installed and sandbagged, by Dennis Spinney, on May 7th, 2007. It was removed by Labor Day weekend, to ensure a low watermark for the repairs. We organized a sandbag party in July of 2007 to fill our supply of sandbags, in preparation for the dam repair in the fall. Dam repair began in the fall of 2007 by Cole Construction of Kennebunkport and was completed by the new year 2008! Thanks, Joe Howes. Here are two photos that were taken before the sandbags were put in place.
