Post Important Events Around the Lake

What an exciting time it is around the lake! Summer is on its way and folks are pulling their boats out of a long waited winter storage to enjoy the tranquility of Winni. There are a few events that we would like to put on your radar. The Lake Winnipesaukee Association will be participating in or co-hosting these events, in addition to continuing to coordinate the water quality monitoring program, manage the Be Winni Blue & LakeSmart program, track cyanobacteria observations and implement restoration projects around the watershed.

Saturday, May 14: The Wentworth Watershed Association is hosting their 4th annual Water Summit at the Town Hall in Wolfeboro at 9am. Ted Diers, NHDES, will give a presentation on road salt and the impacts to water quality. Local lake associations will also give brief updates on the work they are doing to protect our water bodies.
