UNH Water Quality Sampling Highlights
UNH has been studying our water quality since 1982. Very few lakes in NH have that kind of consistent water quality testing. Here's the 2017 sampling highlights report. Analysis shows an improving trend since 2006. We are greatful to our water testing team of Wally Kido, Terry Glazier, Bo and Betty Reidel and Bill and Debbie Sandall.
Fall 2017 Newsletter
The BLA tried something new this year with a night time Boat Parade of Lights. Approx. 20 Boats participated and it was a huge success, with the boats spreading out over much of the lake. Kevin Bevis and Sue Lebel, and their family, provided a real treat with this beauty.
The BLA submitted the final report on the state-issued grant that was awarded to perform runoff remediation work. Two major sites; at Broad Street/Lake Front Street in Amherst and Scenic Vista Way in Merrimack, were completed in 2017. Over 1,000 volunteer hours have been contributed to these projects.
