I was watching you and the selectmen discussing the Clay Pit pond flooding.
This may be a stupid idea, but wouldn’t a 2 to 3 foot berm take care of it? This seems about at the level of an Eagle project, a few loads of loam and some grass seed. Am I missing someting here?
Fair question. This might be one of the few places where a berm might work. The things to analyze are (a) how high and how long the berm would have to be and (b) whether, if there were a berm in place, it would force the waters to a still higher level by eliminating horizontal expansion area; (c) given the hydrostatic pressure on the berm, how robust it would have to be. There is some engineering math to do, but it might work.
Any Eagle Scout volunteering to study the question?
