Reservoir No. 1Seen from Winter St. bridge
“A W.P.A. project for cleaning out and improving a portion of Reservoir No. 1 near Salem End Road was carrier on… A large portion of the men employed thereon were Framingham W.P.A. workers averaging about 30 a day. The only expense to the Town on this project was for transportation of the workers and furnishing a loading machine for loading gravel trucks.” (Town Report, 1941)
A later MDC report stated: “Works Progress Administration Project No. 22857 for improvements to Neyhart Pond, a part of Framingham Reservoir No. 1 was completed.”
