MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A Montpelier-based group upset about a state ruling allowing non-motorized boats on the city’s reservoir is still rallying for total restriction of access to Berlin Pond.

But the owner of a Barre sporting goods store who had pushed for broader access told the Barre Montpelier Times Argus (https://bit.ly/1vUiXGV ) that the Vermont Department of Environmental Conversation has science and the law on its side.

Citizens to Protect Berlin Pond planned a rally on the Statehouse lawn on Saturday to protest the state’s Thursday ruling, which banned motorized boats and vehicles on the pond, but allows non-motorized boats, and activities like fishing.

It’s unknown if the citizens’ group or the city will appeal the ruling.
