What We Do:
Water Quality Monitoring
The SDLA completes three rounds of water quality testing each year in July, August, and September.
Funding to hire an environmental consultant to complete the water quality testing and prepare an annual water quality report is split between SDLA and the Town of New Gloucester.
This annual study provides data on the long term trends in water quality of the lake. The data are entered into the Volunteer Lakes Monitoring Program (VLMP) database, which stores water quality testing data from all participating lakes in Maine.
