Todd Bury, 4172 Old Charter Trail, discussed building a pond on his property that could store some of the water flowing from Raybuck Lake. This will help control the flow of storm water that comes out of Raybuck Lake, which eventually flows into Canterbury Creek. Mr. Bury will pay for the cost of construction of the pond. Gary Diorio of MS Consultants will do the study required and obtain all of the costs. Mr. Diorio stated that the study will take two weeks and construction approximately three weeks. It is expected that the pond will help alleviate some of the storm water problems in Canterbury Creek. Mr. Bury will contact David Shepard, Attorney for Poland Township, to formulate an agreement with the Township so that this project can proceed.
