Videos of Aquetong Restoration

Here's a time-lapse video of the work on Aquetong Spring Park since May 1st:

And here's an aerial video of the start of work on the Aquetong restoration project.

Rich Pasqua captured these images of the diversion of the lake water back into the stream. This work will proceed gradually, allowing the stream to find its own path, and as the lake recedes the fish will be relocated and the artificial dam removed.

HARB Meeting Cancelled

The HARB meeting scheduled for June 1st has been cancelled.  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 6th at 7 pm.

"Hostage" Phone Scam

An area resident was recently called and told that a relative had been involved in an accident in Philadelphia and was now being held hostage, demanding payment of $950 for the damaged vehicle. The resident wired the money to Puerto Rico. After wiring the money, the virtual kidnapper told the resident that he felt bad and now wanted to send the money back and asked for their banking information. Fortunately, local police located the resident before more damage could be done.

The FBI has warned local police about this type of scam. Should you receive a similar phone call or threat, please contact 911 or 215-348-7400—Do not act on it! Solebury Police ask that you share this information widely.

Here's the statement from the FBI:

Solebury Township Historical Society is Documenting Aquetong Restoration

As Solebury Township begins the process of removing the artificial dam and restoring the Aquetong Spring area to its natural state, the Solebury Township Historical Society will document the restoration process together with the history of the area and its environs. Working with the Township and numerous preservation groups, the Historical Society is making a wealth of material available on a special page of its website.
