Morses Pond Dredging Project to Begin

The project’s aim is to restore the Northern Basin’s detention capacity.

If you’ve seen construction equipment beginning to populate the parking lot at the church location, it’s not what you think it’s for.

The town is beginning work on the Northern Basin Dredging Project at Morses Pond this month, according to Hans Larsen, executive director of general government services for the town of Wellesley.

“The project will involve the hydraulic dredging, pumping and disposal of sediments from the pond and will restore the Northern Basin’s detention capacity, which will allow particulate matter to settle in this area before reaching the main part of the pond,” according to Natural Resources Commission documents.

There is no connection between this project and the pending sale of the 900 Worcester St. property from the Archdiocese of Boston to Wellesley, according to Larsen.

It's nice to know that they already have this kind of project. The Morses Pond seriously needs a help. -http://www.dredge.biz/
