On Tuesday October 21, James Gallagher of the DES Dam Bureau will discuss the history and future of lake level management in New Hampshire, and the roles New Hampshire’s citizens play in monitoring dams.
Displays this year by Camp Huckins on Broad Bay, and the Town of Ossipee on the big lake.
The Watershed Management Plan for the Ossipee Lake Lower Bays and Danforth Ponds needs input from residents and land owners. An action plan is part of the planning process and will address conservation, restoration and mitigation priorities to maintain our current high quality waters in this area. What our children and grandchildren inherit will depend on how we care for our local waters. The forum will be held on July 12 in Freedom.
There will be an Important Ossipee Watershed water quality meeting today, June 19th, at 5pm at Freedom Town Hall. For the first time, residents of Ossipee, Freedom, Effingham, Tamworth, and Madison will be able to see an assessment of our local water quality based on a full 10 years of data. Many local volunteers and scientists have been involved in this program supported in part by all of the area’s towns.
Put your thinking cap on and try to guess when Ossipee Lake will be completely free of ice. Guess the correct day and time (to the closest half hour) and you could win a brand new rod and reel in this contest sponsored by the Ossipee Recreation Department and New England Rod and Reel.
