BLACK BEAR WARNING June 26, 2015 The Village of Port Dickinson like other communities has been experiencing situations where BLACK BEARS are traveling into our neighborhoods. The following was published in the Press & Sun-Bulletin to make us aware of the situation we have with these Black Bears. BEARS ARE UP AND AROUND. • Bears have awakened from hibernation and are once again traipsing through our neighborhood in search of food. They will take anything that is easily accessible. • You can discourage them by taking down your bird feeders. Birds do not need supplemental food in the spring and summer. • Also clean your barbeque grills and keep them inside if possible. • Store pet foods indoors and garbage in a secure building or location. • Clean garbage cans frequently and with ammonia products and do not burn garbage. • DO NOT add meat scraps, bones or melon rinds to your compost pile. TO learn more about Black Bears visit the DEC website at www.dec.ny.gov/animals/6995.html or look for the DEC’s DVD: “Living with New York Black Bears” available at most public libraries in New York. For more information about bears in your area or to report a problem with black bears, contact the nearest regional DEC Office. Kirkwood Sub-Office 1679 NYS Route 11 Kirkwood, NY 13795 607-775-2545. Please report any sightings in the Village of Port Dickinson to the Port Dickinson Police at 911 or 722-1255. TAX PAYMENTS due by 6/30/15. WATER/SEWER BILLS due by 7/31/15. Update on the FLOOD CONTROL PUMP STATION located at the end of Watson Avenue adjacent to the Levee The Mayor has spoken recently with the NYSDEC Engineers and has been notified that the installation of the new larger capacity flood pump is expected for delivery and installation in September 2015. Construction began in October of 2014 and was discontinued for the winter. The work entails the following: • Installing a new Pump that will have an increased pumping capacity from the current 6,000 gallons per minute (GPM) to an increased volume of 9,000 to 10,000 GPM. • The new flood pump will be Propane Powered, thus alleviating the need for emergency electric generators during electrical power outages. • A small propane powered backup generator will be installed to maintain telemetry equipment and lighting in the event of an electrical failure. • A Fully automatic pump station control system is being installed. • A system to allow remote visual monitoring and alarm notification of the pumping station status including river water level and ponding water levels. • A concrete pond facility is being constructed alongside of the Levee in the event additional pumping capacity is needed and portable pumps are required. This “pond” will allow portable pumps to continue to operate even during high water levels that in the past have restricted emergency portable pump operations. • A concrete discharge pad near the top of the levee on the river side is being constructed to allow for the discharge from the portable pump hoses. These pads will prevent the water discharge from eroding the levee.
