  1. At one time in the late 60's and early 70's the idea came about to tap into the Conneticut river and ?or the Merrimack River to supply the Quabbin. Primary environmental impact studies were started and I recall a book, about 4 in. thick, containing some of the data being delivered to the local conservation commissions.
  2. Really, I'm 66 and I have seen it maybe 5 times...………….January 2012 I have also seen the resy below 50% capacity back in the mid sixties...…………..
  3. Gee, I was there yesterday and the only water flowing out was over the small spill way under the footbridge...……………. The Quabbin is full when the water flows over the main spill way...…….
  4. ...and Burkie still shovels, by hand mind you, the main route in Rochester...………………..the path to the outhouse
  5. If we, the minions of Massachusetts, stood up to the political hacks in Boston and elsewhere, this event would not be happening...………………….
  6. Because they extra water from Barre Falls (snow melt, rains ect.) is diverted to the resy rather than flooding the towns down stream m(Hardwick, Ware, and Palmer)
  7. In Barre Falls you have an Army Corps flood contron project that regulates the Ware River and the Ware River Valley. This impoundment stores and then, if needed, diverts excessive water to the Quabbin and lessens the downstream impact. Also remember that the Quabbin has not been filled to capacity in at least 10 years. If it does fill up I will post it here as it is quite an awesome sight. I will see if I have any pictures I can post...………..
  8. What is happening at the 'Chu is stockpiling as much water as possible to keep the Quabbin as low as possible before winter. As of right now the Quabbin is within a foot or so of being full and any water overflowing the resy is considered lost. The shorelines at the resevoirs were cut when they were created back in the 30's and brush grows down to the highwater mark (Quabbin). Bear in mind both the Quabbin and Wachusett resevoires were created to supply drinking water and fishing is a very distant second...………..
  9. Received our first snow fall this morning, just a dusting but a look into the future...…………………...
