Spofford Lake Watershed Management Plan

The Spofford Lake Watershed Management Plan is a road map to protect, enhance and sustain the Lake for the next 10, 20 and 30 years. Today, on the surface, the Lake is clean and clear, but we are now actively assessing the negative changes that the last 30 years have brought. The Plan’s methodology forecasts the adverse effects of doing nothing now to protect the Lake. Let’s use the Plan’s recommendations to preserve the ecological, environmental and recreational characteristics of Spofford Lake and the surrounding watershed.

Enjoy the Boat Regatta Tradition

To celebrate July 4th, boats parade around the Lake ending in a spirited contest to gain undefined prestige. But please, no balloon fights. ‘Biodegradable’ balloons are said to decompose in about the same time as oak leaves, which is about 4 years. What mischief do these balloons cause with fish, birds and aquatic animals? What about the chemicals, plasticizers and artificial dyes?
