To the editor:
I am concerned about the water quality in the North Hadley pond. If the dam is removed and the pond dries up, it could be trouble. The smell would be bad and who knows what could be blown into the air? Isn’t it safer to keep whatever is under there under water? Right now the pond is so beautiful. If it is drained it will just turn into a swamp. We have enough swampland in Hadley already. This is our only pond. I am glad Town Meeting voted yes May 1 for the CPA funds to fix the dam.
