Question Raised about Runoff from New Building Site across the Pond

Steve Sanborn, Hiram's code enforcement officer, contacted Harold Gillman about a complaint regarding runoff from the building site across the pond. The person lodging the complaint with Mr. Sanborn indicated they were calling from the Clemons Pond Association. At this point, no one has offered the name of the person who placed the complaint. Note: No one - neither members nor non-members of the Clemons Pond Association - should act as a representative of the CPA without consent from the CPA president, Doug Bradley.

In case anyone is concerned about runoff from the Day residence building site, here is Steve Sanborn's communication to Harold:

Hi Harold:
I had a call from the Clemons Pond Association complaining about the exposed sand around the new Day residence on the backside of the pond. I checked everything out and there isn’t any problem with the conservation mix or anything else for that matter. The sand around the house is over the one hundred foot setback and is fine the way it is, as a matter of fact it is better open than covered while they are building because it will absorb the water rather than making it runoff over loam.


2014 Clemons Pond Association Picnic

The 2014 CPA Picnic was enjoyed by everyone who attended on Saturday, July 19th, at the Saurmans' camp. Good weather, delicious food, fun conversations, and camaraderie added up to good times for all. Many thanks to Charlie and Ava for hosting and also to the volunteers who worked the grill and helped with set-up and tear-down.

Update: We now have 2014 Picnic photos on the Gallery Page! If anyone else took pictures at the 2014 Association picnic, please email them to David Howard, if you wish to have them included in the gallery.

Update: Land for Sale on the Other Side of the Pond

We recently found a link to a real estate listing for 24 acres on the other side of the pond. Included along with the listing is the following video tour. Click here to view the listing details.


Inland Fisheries Decision - Watercraft Horsepower on Clemons Pond

The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife issued its decision on the request to limit horsepower on Clemons Pond. The Commissioner, after considering all testimony, public comments and materials presented to him, decided not to impose a horsepower restriction at this time. (Click here to read the Commissioner's letter.)

On behalf of the majority of members of the Association, I would like to thank all who offered their services and wrote letters to Inland Fisheries in our attempt to limit the horsepower rating on our pond.

Special thanks to Bill Tate and Harold Gillman for all of their hard work.
