Pocasset Lake Watershed Survey complete

October 17, 2023

On September 28th, we completed the Pocasset Lake Watershed Survey. Fourteen volunteers led by six technical leaders worked together for a full day of fieldwork, traveling throughout the entire watershed looking for erosion problems that threaten water quality. Seventy erosion sites were identified, and a full report of our findings, recommendations, and prioritized next steps will be available this winter. Follow-up letters will be sent to all landowners with identified erosion sites. 

To the watershed landowners who cooperated and participated in the survey, THANK YOU! A special THANKS to the survey volunteers who dedicated much time to this effort: Marianne Butak, Fred Duplisea, Desi Fyler, Mary Ann Hayes, Cynthia Giguere-Unrein, Sue Heard, Lloyd Irland, Andrew Kittel, Kelly Kittel, Patt Koscinski, David Randall, Jeremy Smith, Dick Windecker, and Patti Windecker.

 The survey was organized and facilitated by 30 Mile staff with support from the Pocasset Lake Association (PLA), Maine DEP, and the Town of Wayne, and with financial assistance through a grant from the Davis Conservation Foundation.
