Heald Pond Dam

Inspection

On May 25, 2006, the Heald Pond dam was inspected by (from left to right) Dave Lenart, Consulting Engineer from Tighe&bond, Environmental Specialists, Ellen Fisher, Pepperell Conservation Administrator, and Rob Rand, Conservation Commissioner. Mr Lenart was hired by the town to help prepare a report on the status of the dam to the state.
It was noted that the dam is not in prime condition and needs some work. Also, as can be seen on the other Heald Pond page, the pipe under the road is not always big enough. There was a concern that because the pipe is buried shallow under the road, that heavy construction vehicles may damage the pipe, resulting in emergency repairs.
