Warning signs to be installed at Wilton reservoir

WILTON – Because of deteriorating conditions, the Board of Selectmen decided Monday, July 25, to install "Danger – Keep Off" signs along the dam at the Old Reservoir.

The area is public prop­erty and open to walkers along the brook.

"It’s a long drop if some­one walking along the top fell off," Chairman Kermit Williams said.

Selectmen briefly dis­cussed the signs at the New Reservoir, which were erected when it was the town water supply and left in place when it became a backup supply. Those signs also should be updated, selectmen said.

Residents of the area have asked many times that it be used for recre­ation.

Selectmen also voted to reactivate the Recycling Center Advisory Commit­tee, a citizens group com­posed of a member from each of the five participat­ing towns.
