the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Last night at the Village Council meeting, Rich Calbi gave an outstanding (and comprehensive) report on how the Water Company is keeping our water safe and is complying with (and exceeding) EPA guidelines.  He is a great guy, very thorough and although he was speaking about scientific details, it was easy to understand.  Also, it is very helpful that the powerpoint slides are broadcast on the live stream to us at home.  I have been at meetings where you cannot even begin to see what is projected on those relatively small screens.  Thank you Mr. Calbi for your hard work on our behalf.

Reader says I have never seen the Duck Pond look worse than I have seen it now

duckpond_theridgewoodblog

I grew up with the Duck Pond being partially raised in the village and I have never seen the condition of the park, specifically the pond, look worse than I have seen it now. It looks as if the county and or the town or whoever takes care of the Duck Pond has lost interest and doesn’t really care. The accumulation of algae this year is horrible to the point where I believe it could be toxic with the odor alone. Signs are posted at the Glen Rock park and pond location in Glen Rock, also run by the county, which warn of a toxic algae accumulation in their pond, which looks mild by comparison to the Duck Pond situation, where the smell is putrid to the point where it almost made me vomit. Don’t believe me, go to the Duck Pond as of August 25, 2018. Doesn’t anybody give a shit?
