The town, in collaboration with FPAC, is creating a Watershed Based Plan (WBP) to aid in protecting water quality in the pond. The WBP development position is being funded with a $50,000 state grant and will be advertised via a RFP that we are preparing. FPAC is working with a consultant and "certified lake manager", to create a proposed project plan and assemble data to include in the RFP. The WBP will include recommendations for immediate action and long term management.
FPAC and the Town are exploring funding sources and planning to upgrade erosion control systems at the parking lot, boat ramp, and the beach to significantly reduce surface runoff from these areas.
