Re: “State Won't Ban Recreation on Berlin Pond

Well said, Fred (whomever you might be). People who live around Berlin Pond are perfectly okay with others who come and have a fine day - be they joggers or boaters. What we don't want is a bunch of tree-huggers who think they've defined what clean water is and lay claim to what should or not be done in terms of the Pond. What water do they drink, and where does it come from? Lake Champlain with all of its boats/ships and unwashed swimmers? Are they people who live in a double-wide next to a seemingly virginal brook where bears §hit in the forest? Get real. Water supply is in every instance an act of faith - even for refugees to the expensive bottled stuff. Those who enjoy Berlin Pond these days (finally ... after a hundred years) are kind and gentle. They know how to treat Mother Nature with respect (except for the rednecks who simply throw their beer cans and leftovers on the dirt road or wherever it's convenient). I hope that this entire issue can be put to rest and that everyone just enjoys the glory of Berlin Pond without having to get their nose out of joint.

Re: “State Won't Ban Recreation on Berlin Pond

It is my understanding that Berlin Pond is the back-up reservoir for Montpelier, not the main source of water ... otherwise it would be continuously draining down to bedrock. Please feel free to beat me over the head if I'm wrong, but the facts have to be checked first, okay? I don't think the DEC fell on its head in making this decision, and the ruling makes total sense to me.
