Water Quality Data
Since 2000, basic water quality parameters have been monitored in the "deep spot", inlet, outlet, and tributaries of each waterbody once a month (typically June, July, and August) of each year. Monitoring procedures follow the New Hampshire Volunteer Lakes Assessment Program Protocols.
Annual water quality reports for each of the ponds can be found by visiting the Urban Ponds Restoration Program Publications page or by visiting the New Hampshire Volunteer Lake Assessment Program website publications page.
