Solebury Seeks Volunteers for Aquetong Committee

The restoration of Aquetong Spring as a passive recreation area has long relied on the active involvement of citizens and conservation groups, and the final stages of planning for the park are no exception.

The Solebury Township Board of Supervisors is forming the Aquetong Spring Advisory Committee to recommend the best use of existing buildings, new improvements and passive recreational opportunities for the reclaimed pond and dam area. The five-member committee will include one representative each from the Aquetong Watershed Association, the Parks and Recreation Board and the Environmental Advisory Committee, and two additional township residents.

Residents who would like to be considered for the committee are invited to email the Township Manager expressing their interests and qualifications, including a resume if applicable.

The committee is expected to meet at least four times over the course of a year, and report back to the Board of Supervisors in an advisory capacity at least twice in that time.

The slides from the presentations by Jordan Yeager, Jonathan Reiss and Terry Clemons are available for download and viewing:

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.
