HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy says the state will raise $2.1 million to boost the capacity of the Dooley Pond Dam in Middletown.

The dam, located near Route 17 south of Brushy Hill Road, is considered in poor condition _ including a partially collapsed spillwall and problems with water control.

The funds approved by the State Bond Commission will pay for construction of a new, higher capacity spillwall and other improvements that will increase the dam capacity.

The state Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection will administer the project. DEEP Commissioner Rob Klee says repairs to the Dooley Pond Dam will contribute to both public safety and allow outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy it.
