Hancock County Lakes and Ponds

(51 Kb, last updated 1/14/10)

This list was generated using information from residents who live around the ponds and lakes, information from town officials, and government agencies.  We have made every effort to insure that the information is accurate.  If you find items that need correction, please call the District office at 667-8663 or email hancockcountyswcd@outlook.com

This past summer, members of the HCLA participated in conducting water quality monitoring (secchi & dissolved oxygen) of local ponds and lakes and volunteered during the Hancock County Annual Lakes Survey Week to check for invasive aquatic plants.

 

Due to a wonderful grant that we received from the Davis Conservation Foundation, we were able to purchase two dissolved oxygen meters to lend out to trained volunteers (they need to have taken the training workshop through the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program- for information on their workshops, please see their website at:www.mainevolunteerlakemonitors.org).  If you are interested in borrowing a meter from the District, please call the office at 667-8663.

Through meetings and email, the group receives information on lake related trainings and other information of interest.  Topics of past meetings include “How to Start a Lake Association”, “How to Get Money for Your Lake”, and “How to Get Towns People Interested in Lakes”.  The HCLA is also the volunteer base for the Annual Survey Week, where we try to have all public boat launches in Hancock County checked for invasive aquatic plants.  New members are always welcome.  For  more information or if you would like to be added to the email list, please contact the District office at 667-8663 or hancockcountyswcd@outlook.com
