"Hostage" Phone Scam

An area resident was recently called and told that a relative had been involved in an accident in Philadelphia and was now being held hostage, demanding payment of $950 for the damaged vehicle. The resident wired the money to Puerto Rico. After wiring the money, the virtual kidnapper told the resident that he felt bad and now wanted to send the money back and asked for their banking information. Fortunately, local police located the resident before more damage could be done.

The FBI has warned local police about this type of scam. Should you receive a similar phone call or threat, please contact 911 or 215-348-7400—Do not act on it! Solebury Police ask that you share this information widely.

Here's the statement from the FBI:

Solebury Township Historical Society is Documenting Aquetong Restoration

As Solebury Township begins the process of removing the artificial dam and restoring the Aquetong Spring area to its natural state, the Solebury Township Historical Society will document the restoration process together with the history of the area and its environs. Working with the Township and numerous preservation groups, the Historical Society is making a wealth of material available on a special page of its website.

Aquetong Restoration Project to Start April 27

The waters from Aquetong Spring haven't flowed freely since the end of the Civil War. That's about to change this month, as Solebury Township begins the process of removing the Aquetong Lake dam, restoring the natural stream bed and creating a natural recreation area on the surrounding preserved lands.

The Township has contracted with Flyway Excavating to begin the work to remove the dam, starting on April 27. Solebury has spent the last several months working with The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers to ensure that removal of the dam meet their rigorous standards.

Safety Considerations During Aquetong Restoration

The removal of the artificial dam and restoration of the Aquetong Spring area into park land is set to begin at the end of April. To protect everyone's safety, the Township will soon be posting the entire Aquetong park and open space area, including the Judy House and grounds, as closed due to construction.  

The process of removing the dam, restoring the natural stream bed and creating a natural recreation area will proceed gradually, and at many stages of the project the area would be dangerous to anyone walking in or near the site. Please respect the safety restrictions posted by the Township and the contractor, Flyway Excavating, throughout the restoration.
