Lake Waukewan Watershed Restoration Plan Development

The Lake Winnipesaukee Association has been awarded a Section 319 Watershed Restoration Grant through the NHDES Watershed Assistance Section to develop a thorough Waukewan-Winona WRP that includes the EPA’s nine mandatory or key elements for watershed-based plans.

Tasks undertaken to date include the evaluation of existing lake and tributary data, an assessment of current watershed conditions, and identification of actions for reducing current and future sources of pollution to the lake.  The final plan will be both a stand-alone plan for the Waukewan-Winona watershed and a supplement to the 2005 Waukewan Watershed Management Plan.  The plan will be able to be accessed on line at the Winnipesaukee Gateway website.
