Mark Heuberger
01:00:43
Thank you for explaining the importance of external loading, watershed and land conservation, and best practices for lakeside property owners..
Adair Mulligan
01:02:21
incredibly useful to learn that only 10% is internal loading and most of the rest is up to all of us who own lakeshore property. Buffers!
Mark Heuberger
01:10:41
Septic system impacts hard to quantify as we don’t know how many are non-functional and right next to the water. Let’s keep this as a priority for reducing the external loading.
Chris Raleigh
01:11:12
Terrific presentation. Thank you!!
Brad & Megan Clark
01:11:25
Well done, BLA and 7LA

Thanks to all panelists and attendees for your commitment to our lakes.

Our goal is to have 80% of Great Pond LakeSmart Certified (including stream properties) by 2030!!!
Mark Heuberger
01:16:44
Hi Maggie, that is a fantastic goal. Thanks.
dave gay
01:17:54
I think the LakeSmart 80% goal and plan needs to be extended to LONG POND at the same time.
dave gay
01:18:35
Dave Gay made suggestion on Long Pond LakeSmart.
Linda Bacon
01:23:03
DEP is conducting temperature trend analyses on the 50-year dataset right now. I expect that we will have a report with specifics ready by June of 2021.
Laura Rose Day
01:26:22
In addition to a lake science webinar, 7 Lakes will also host a land conservation webinar focused on how land conservation benefits the health of the lakes region. We'll also cover the basics about the tools that can be used to conserve land.
Maggie Shannon
01:28:13
Plus, if you throw money at Alum before you cut back runoff from outside the lake, you will have a very short eriod of benefit fro your investment.
Matti Bradley
01:28:50
don’t have lawns!
dave gay
01:29:43
