CHARLTON — Imagine purchasing your dream waterfront property only to find out that the very lake you moved on to could soon become a marshland.

That was the plight of Serafino DiFranco, who eight years ago moved to the shores of Prindle Lake.

A manmade body of water that is used recreationally by the public and the some 85 homeowners that live on its shore, Prindle Lake was in danger of being drained to a marsh when its dam failed a state safety inspection in 2006. At the time, the dam was privately owned, belonging to Mary Whitehouse Santos and her ex-husband, John Santos, and the Prindle Lake Association (PLA), who couldn't afford the estimated $350,000 in engineering costs needed for its repair.
