Dear Lake Host Point People,
Please take a few minutes to read the DES press release below and please
forward it to the hosts working at your lake and other interested parties in
your lake/pond community.
These two unfortunate examples stress how very important it is for lake and
pond groups to be actively involved in both Lake Host prevention activities
and Weed Water early detection activities.
Keep up the great work!

Among the many concerns raised by Pawtuckaway Residents:
Winter water levels would be at least two feet higher than in the past, which
could damage docks and prevent shoreline cleanup.
Summer water levels could be much lower than normal, making boating unsafe,
impacting water quality, and harming loon nests.
The plan is theoretical, relying on untested computer models to reallocate water
for downstream fish habitat and water supply
Downstream communities (especially Durham) have not implemented mandatory
water conservation measures.
The best way to get up to speed on this subject is to go to the following web page and click on Lamprey River: http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/wmb/rivers/instream/ (http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/wmb/rivers/instream/) . You'll be taken to the info for our watershed, including three current conditions links. The Excel file titled Current Lamprey Insteam Flow Conditions takes awhile to load but it changes daily and provides a one-page status report, along with detailed data. To find the draft plan itself, click on Water Management Plan. The comments we submitted last year, as well as comments and more recent correspondence from the UDWS, are all under Task 11 (Comments to the Lamprey WMP).
Over 100 lake residents attended the June 26th meeting held at the Nottingham Town Hall regarding the winter drawdown.

exotic species saves on Pawtuckaway Lake this summer. I am proud of the
work our lake hosts are doing, but this scares the heck out of me. We
had three last year and three the year before. Thank you Therese, Evan,
Luke, Kathy, Krystal and John. I hope more volunteers come out to help
us next year.
