Maudslay pond restoration gets state funds

NEWBURYPORT — The state Department of Conservation and Recreation has awarded a $16,000 matching grant for restoration and maintenance of the Maudslay State Park’s flowering reflection pond.

With $8,000 from the Maudslay State Park Association, a total of $24,000 will go toward the pond restoration effort, park personnel say.

State Rep. Mike Costello, D-Newburyport, and state Sen. Kathleen O’Connor Ives, D-Newburyport, were instrumental in obtaining the grant, state officials said.

Included within the scope of the planned project is erosion mitigation and sedimentation control.

Plantings, new trees, basins and diversion will be put into place to ensure that the health of the pond is maintained.
