Bolton Valley Community Forum


Bolton Valley Forum

The Bolton Valley Community Forum is to assist Bolton Valley residents in arranging events, disseminating information to promote collaboration in our community.

This is a way of providing residents on the mountain a way to disseminate timely information along with a forum  to express opinions, wishes, news, questions, comments and concerns.

Residents are encouraged to submit web content to:

   Bolton Valley Community Forum 

      Kurt Ries

Please folks, all comments and requests must be in writing and utilizing email is the most effective way to compile the requests and responses. 

 The idea is to make it as easy as possible for residents  to collaborate with each other, reducing the time and effort to bring ideas and  tasks to fruition.

Thank you for taking the time to participation in the Bolton Valley Community Forum.

The Water Verdict is In


            I am proud to announce that after almost one year, we, the community of Bolton Valley, have been approved by the state to receive credit for the amount worth one month of water! But much more has come from all of this. To be honest, I would go as far as saying that the roof collapse on our water shed was more that just a structural issue. It was truly a “blessing in disguise”!

            Working closely and with the cooperation of several parties, namely Larry Williams representing Catamount Water, the Public Service Board of Vermont, and our own residents, we were able to establish not only a new watershed structure, but the need to inform, communicate, and educate the customers of Catamount Water on a timely basis.

            Along with the refund, a new “Water Advisory Committee” was been established. All parties came together and agreed upon a meeting schedule. The committee has the responsibility to inform Catamount Water customers of any issues concerning the water system. Currently, we are continuing to structure the committee and more details will be brought forth as that process develops.

            In short, this is what happens when a community comes together and works as one to solve an issue. Positive things do happen! More than ever, it is important to log this website as a “favorite” on your screen and continue to take a peek at what continues to evolve.

            It has been my pleasure and I will continue to represent this community.

Dear Water Customer,
This notice is to inform you that we will be commencing repairs to the water reservoir on Snowdrift Lane on October 20th.  We expect that the repairs will be completed by November 9th. 
The repairs include structural reinforcement of the concrete walls, filling and sealing interior cracks and re-grading around the tank exterior.  The work also includes installing water level controls as requested by the State of Vermont.
The work will necessitate utilizing a temporary water storage tank which is being installed this week.  The temporary tank has a lower water storage capacity and therefore we request that all customers make an effort to conserve water during the repair period.
We will be increasing the frequency of water quality testing during the repair period.  We do not anticipate that a boil water notice will be required as a result of the repair process.
Please feel free to contact me at 802-658-7400 x12 or with any questions or concerns.

4.                  All test results will be immediately reported to the State of Vermont Water Supply Division.
Please remember that it is important to conserve water during the repair period.

Matt & Al,

I am writing with the weekly update regarding the status of repairs for the reservoir.

1.    The repairs/crack sealing at the interior of the tank are completed.  We are letting the crack sealant cure and expect to be able to start refilling the tank early next week.

2.    The concrete buttresses are complete.  We modified the design in the field to extend the buttresses an additional 2' to cover cracking that was close to the corners but would not have been covered with the original sizing.

3.    The majority of exterior insulation is in place and backfilling is underway.

4.    We are currently on schedule.

Mike Bernadine is coordinating weekly testing a submitting results to you directly.

I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions or require additional information.
