Update: 3rd Street & Broomall’s Lake
There is a conference about the 3rd Street Litigation scheduled for March 31, 2014 between Media Borough, Broomall’s Lake Country Club (BLCC) and Delaware County. The conference is not open to the public, and will be before Judge Proud in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas. A December 9, 2013 ruling by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania had reinstated the 2011 Stipulation Agreement and returned the case to the Delaware County Courts to interpret that Stipulation Agreement. We will report when we learn the outcome of the March 31 conference.
Previously, a January 13, 2014 letter from Pennsylvania DEP (PA DEP) mailed to BLCC and addressed “Dear Dam Owner” included an updated dam registration and permit fee schedule. The water level of Broomall’s Lake has remained high since July 2013, contrary to PA DEP’s instructions to keep it lowered for public safety.
The Friends of Glen Providence Park continues to support dam removal, stream restoration and a local discussion of an environmentally-sensitive connection between Media Borough and Upper Providence.
