Neighbor Requests Duck Pond Cleanup

fountainWe recieved the followinng letter from a Heathcote Resident: 

May 24, 2021

From a neighbor near the Scarsdale Duck Pond in Heathcote

Mayor of Village of Scarsdale
Manager of Village of Scarsdale
Sirs:
I live in walking distance to the Duck Pond in the heart of our Heathcote section for decades.

I write to our village officials of a real ecological problem brewing for years. The several attractive illuminated water fountains that keep the Duck Pond water clean, beautiful, and draw residents to the spot at Heathcote Road and Duck Pond Road failed last year and now all the fountains that light up the evening are gone. As it became last year, the water is again becoming dirty and smelly as it did at the end of last summer when the fountains broke and slimy greenish algae formed and covered the entire pond. Again in 2021, the area is no longer attractive for residents to walk to and visit this site with their children or grandchildren. And sadly, we also haven’t even seen the ducks this year.

Its such a small thing in Scarsdale but a big thing to the neighborhood. Please replace the illuminated fountains asap. I know there were 2 or 3 illuminated mountains that worked for many many years. Shamefully, now there are none.

Thank you, from a Duck Pond Lover
