Steps began to be taken last night in making Miller Pond a public drinking water reservoir. The 10-square-mile Hunts Brook watershed that feeds it will need to be protected to ensure the water remains potable.

This rare gem is prized for its beauty and seclusion in the town’s rural-residential north end and is poised to become the region’s first new reservoir for public drinking water in decades.  A pending proposal would help fill future needs for a region projected to run short of water in the decades ahead without new sources. Tonight at 7, the public will have a chance to hear and comment on plans for protecting Miller Pond and its 10-square-mile watershed.
