they need to keep it open so they can keep the fresh pond levels down when we have excessive rain..otherwise everything floods.
the problem is that it used to be a natural channel that ebbed and flowed by itself. they built GB where the natural channel was and just left a much smaller opening. Now it's a mess.

They just need to remember to open it BEFORE the flooding happens. Remember what happened last year?
