Middleton residents want to keep Sunrise Lake beautiful for all
To keep the water clean, clear and safe, about 50 residents — both seasonal and full-time — and local officials spent two hours talking about issues at the first Sunrise Lake Summit on Saturday.
“We all utilize the lake and the lake is a resource to the town,” Mullen said, adding most people agree Sunrise Lake is in good shape.
Mullen said the state used herbicide to treat about 20 acres of the 247-acre lake in June. He added divers pulled 410 gallons of wilted milfoil from the lake’s bottom the following month.
“We want to be friendly neighbors, but we want to protect the lake,” Mullen said, adding “the water belongs to everybody.”
Selectman John Hotchkiss, who also serves as a commissioner with the Sunrise Lake Village District, said lake officials must adjust to a change in law which prevents the state’s dam bureau from maintaining private structures – like the dam on Sunrise Lake.
He said the district can either use volunteers to monitor the dam or hire a company. He added the state will honor the existing contract and monitor the dam through 2014 while continuing to inspect it twice a year into the future.
“New Hampshire DES has a plethora of information for those who have access to that,” Mullen said, referring residents to http://des.nh.gov.
