Reasons for pond levels?

June 27, 2012 - Dear Editor,

Regarding the low level of the Mill Pond; this has been an ongoing problem the past few years. During that time, I have heard a number of reasons for this occurring, some of which include the following:

It was being lowered for chemical treatment; so homeowners could clean up the shore; Mill Pond waters were being diverted to flush out the Depot Park stream; owners of the Clarkston Mils were deliberately lowering the ponds in an effort to try and force homeowners to assume liability for the hydro; and the latest, it is a result of pond-front homeowners irrigating their lawns.

It would certainly be nice to know the real cause, and possible solution to this problem. The Mill Pond is a gem in the City of Clarkston, and should be protected.
