Province Lake Association focusing on water quality
According to PLA project coordinator Carl Davis, over the past few years the lake has experienced extensive, lingering blooms of potentially toxic algae. In addition, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services has listed the lake as "impaired" due to high phosphorus and chlorophyll counts.
The lake flows to the Saco River watershed and is drained by the South River to the northwest, Davis said.
The process will include reviewing lake water quality data, pollution modeling, field surveys and identification of opportunities to fix pollution sources. Once gathered, this information will be used to develop site-specific recommendations for practices, projects and programs that can be implemented at the local level to improve water quality.
