Water testing

Most of today has been taken up with managing the monthly water testing session. Each month, May through September, on the second Tuesday, a group of Lake residents get together to gather water samples from about 15 locations around the lake. These sample are taken to the NH State Dept. of Environmental Services Lab in Concord and tested. The results of these tests form a record going back 15 years now, of the condition of the lake and it's tributaries. This takes place at lakes all over the state. The program is called the Volunteer Lake Assessment Program. You can read alot more about the program at the NH DES website.

This spring Don R., who had been the volunteer manager of the program for our lake, decided he needed to step down. I took on the responsibilities. Before Don, the program was managed by Werner Sachs, and before that by my Dad.
