As reported earlier [LINK], LFA has been awarded two grants this year which support our efforts to preserve the health of our lake. A lot has already happened behind the scenes, and soon we will begin the visible work.

This all should be completed by the end of September. The Town of Thetford will transport and deposit the rocks and the fill, and volunteers will install the silt fence, the fabric, and do the planting.

The Watershed Grant from the Department of Fish and Wildlife will pay for the restoration of riparian buffers along three sections of lakeshore. As we have explained [LINK], a “buffer” of native vegetation along the water’s edge separates the uphill land uses from the lake and benefits water quality. We have identified three properties around the lake which will benefit from additional lakeshore planting. Each presents a different challenge. We will post before and after photos when we report on the completion of the project.
