Notice to Proceed was given and work commenced on the project on May 1st, beginning with glyphosate treatment of cattails.  The contractor (Backwater Environmental) has since been working diligently performing work in Stonehill Estates.  All major work on Dry Pond 5 has been completed and the embankment area has been seeded.  Significant work has also been performed on Dry Ponds #1, 2, 3 and 4.  Thus far the contractor’s performance has been admirable and they are proceeding slightly ahead of schedule.
