A drawdown of Lake Quinsigamond and Flint Pond will begin on or around Nov. 4. Residents along the water are asked to remove boats at least two days before the drawdown. No filling or dredging will be allowed while the water level is down. Residents are responsible for removal of trash or debris along the water’s edge; mechanical removal is prohibited. Residents are also advised to care for docks and structures near the shore to prevent damage from ice over the winter. The water levels will be restored by April.
