Water Quality for Great and Long Pond


Pristine water quality for Great and Long Pond is a heritage that we can take for granted, right? It was, in 1908 when the Belgrade Lakes Association was formed.

Today, that’s no longer the case.  It is the responsibility of everyone with an interest in these lakes to help “protect and preserve” them. 

The pages introduced here talk about how lakes work, what the Belgrade Lakes Association is doing to protect water quality, and how you—one person—can help keep them working well for your enjoyment, recreation, and the economic sustainability of the region.   The change—in people, their habits and habitats, and the ways in which they use the lakes—since the Belgrade Lakes Association was formed in 1908, is monumental.  Water quality can no longer be taken for granted.
