Montpelier Seeking Further Protections for Berlin Pond

Times Argus - 10:01 am Thu Jun 3rd, 2010

Following a recent clash with three area residents over the right to kayak and fish on Berlin Pond, the city of Montpelier is considering adopting a new ordinance and revising an old one.

Montpelier wants the ordinances in order to protect the pond, which supplies the city with water. The ordinances would clarify and strengthen Montpelier's ability to take action to protect the pond, and would raise the city's existing "Source Protection Plan" to something that can be enforced with fines and penalties, according to Paul Giuliani, the city's attorney.

It would also allow the city to act more quickly to a threat of pollution or contamination, Giuliani said.
