Maintaining a Healthy Lake

What we do can make a big difference in the health and welfare of our lake. Eutrophication is the natural aging of lakes from the addition of nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen. They stimulate algae and aquatic plant growth. In modern times a large percentage of these nutrients enter the lake from the development of its watershed. The watershed area of Lake Wononscopomuc is the total area from which water drains into the lake. Anyone who lives within this area has an effect on the quantity of nutrients entering the lake. The key is to limit the amount of phosphorus, nitrogen and sedimentation entering the lake.
