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 for Crystal Lake, Dorrs Pond, Nutts Pond, Pine Island Pond, and Stevens Pond follow the New Hampshire Volunteer Lakes Assessment Program Protocols. Monitoring procedures for Black Brook (formerly Maxwell Pond) and McQuesten Brook follow the New Hampshire Volunteer River Assessment Program Protocols.
