In a landmark moment for the town, the Stockbridge Bowl Stewardship Commission has submitted a lake management plan to the Select Board. This plan represents countless hours of hard work by the SBSC members, with contributions from SB, Conservation Commission, Water and Sewer Commission and Board of Health, as well as from the Stockbridge Bowl Association and many individual citizens.
Equally laudable is the SB's decision, at the behest of the Con Comm, to consider further inputs so that the plan is assured to sit well with state regulatory agencies.
I personally would like to see more watershed protection. This is especially important considering the calcitic-dolomitic infrastructure of the Stockbridge Basin.
Editor's Note: Charles Kenny was the founder of the committee that preceded Stockbridge Bowl Stewardship Committee (SBSC) and one of the original members of SBSC.
