State officials said they are working to lower the water level at a Coventry pond that has risen to 10 feet above normal. Heavy rains and a beaver dam on a culvert have contributed to the flooding, which has sent water close to homes and Route 114. Jay McGinne, a supervising civil engineer with the Department of Environmental Management, told the Kent County Daily Times that the agency is working to reduce water levels at Carbuncle Pond. The Fish and Wildlife Department is in charge of pumping water from the pond, but the department has to approve a plan on how to lower water levels.
