The dam and fishing access areas at Records Pond in Laurel will close on Monday through spring of 2021 – also Willow Street will be closed during the construction period. DelDOT will begin reconstruction of the dam to improve safety.  The dam is ranked #2 out of 41 state regulated dams on the prioritization list.  Boaters will still have access as the boat ramp on Route 13 will remain open – however boaters are advised to keep clear of the dam construction area.  They should also expect the water level in the pond to be lower during the construction – which could affect boat launching and use.
