Another public figure has expressed his concerns over the chosen recommendation on how best to deal with the Forestville Millpond. Terry McNulty, the president of the Village of Forestville, said the solution to drain the Millpond for two summers and two winters creates a potential safety hazard for the community. The pond is currently the primary water source for the Southern Door County Fire Department and previously mentioned that there weren’t many other reliable sources of water in the area to use. McNulty also said he has doubts that the solution would truly clear out any invasive aquatic species. Beyond any physical drawbacks, McNulty said the pond is too familiar for many residents to drain for so long.
McNulty said his solution would be to dredge the pond, but mentioned it could be potentially expensive as it covers a large area. An informational hearing to discuss the Millpond is set for Wednesday.
