Rutland moves forward with plan to drain pond

Posted: Updated:

The city of Rutland is moving forward with plans to drain a neighborhood pond over the objections of neighbors.

Since 1986 the water in Moon Brook below the dam at Combination Pond has not met state water quality standards. City officials say the solution is to remove the pond.

The city says it is now working with the state to find possible alternatives, but they still believe draining the pond is the best choice.

Homeowners living near the pond are outraged by that plan.

City officials say they will try to work with the residents on ideas for what could possibly go in the pond's place.
