The New Milford Town Council has approved the use of some American Rescue Plan Act dollars. Funding will be used to make repairs and upgrades to the Reservior Dam. Public Works Director Jack Healy says with all the significant rains recently, he's noticed some sloughing. The Reservoir property can be used for town water use, if needed, and is a destination for recreational use. Once the renovations are completed, officials expect the dam to last another 50 to 100 years. Some Council members though asked for information about tearing down the Dam and having the area without it. The Department of Public Woks will provide that information at the next New Milford Town Council meeting.
