Emergency Dam Repair – Beaver Meadow Dam

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS, Michael Fowler, P.E., Director
Thomas A. Carrier, Deputy DPW Director

TO: Residents of Martha Drive and Sabra Circle FROM: Michael A. Fowler, Director of Public Works
SUBJECT: Emergency Dam Repair – Beaver Meadow Dam


This notice is sent to inform residents of a situation in which the Beaver Meadow dam requires an immediate repair due to significant undermining of the dam structure. A crew from American Excavating will commence repair efforts on Wednesday, May 1, 2013. It is anticipated that the work will take approximately one week to conduct the repairs. The repair will be conducted from the end of Sabra Circle where there is an access point.
For the safety of you and your family, it is important to stay out of the construction area until the repair is completed. Although the structure appears to be safe, water is flowing under the dam at a high rate of velocity. This is especially dangerous for young children who may be crossing the dam or playing on the structure itself.
Equipment and material may be staged in the paved cul-de-sac of Sabra Circle for the duration of the repair project.
Questions may be forwarded to the DPW office which is open Monday through Friday from 7am – 4pm. The phone number is 432-6144.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Teens Robbed of I-pod/Cell Phone


MANCHESTER, NH- On Monday, February 11, 2013, at about 6:30 PM, Manchester Police responded to a Clay Street address for a report of a robbery.  On arrival, they met with two 16 year old Manchester teens who reported they had been the victims of a robbery a short time earlier on Somerville Street, near Belmont Street.


According to the boys, they were walking in the area when they were approached by two men, one of whom demanded their belongings, indicating his companion had a gun, although no gun was observed.


One of the boys surrendered his I-pod Nano and Galaxy S3 cell phone and the men left.  They were last seen leaving the area as passengers in an older, dark colored 4-door sedan operated by a third individual who was possibly wearing a red sweatshirt.


The first suspect was described as a white male in his forties, about 6’3” tall with a slender build and dark “stubble” on his face.  He was last seen wearing a dark colored vest and a green “beanie” style hat.  The second man, alleged to have possessed a gun, was described as a clean-shaven white male in his forties with an average height and build.  He was last seen wearing a camouflage shirt and khaki pants.
