It's in our name --protecting our waters is deeply important to our mission. This year we are helping to organize two watershed surveys in the District. These watershed surveys take a lot of work! Each summer, volunteers, local experts, non-profits, lake associations, local and state government all come together to complete these huge projects.
This year we are helping with surveys at Taylor Pond in Auburn and Thompson Lake in Poland. During the surveys, teams of volunteers will identify erosion and sedimentation sites that are contributing to excess pollution in the lake. Using the results of the survey, towns and lake associations can apply federal funding. Individuals and road associations can receive part of this funding to fix identified problems on their properties.
