Having been a part on my Lake Association for over 15 years, I certainly appreciate the work from dedicated residents who are focused on managing their special resource.
Lake Associations are usually made up of a volunteer Board of Directors that are chartered with many lake management activities…everything from water quality to weed control. Some associations are more active than others.
Once in while, I like to highlight one that is doing a great job protecting and managing their lake. Long Pond in Lakeville is one of the nicest (and largest) fully recreational lakes in Massachusetts.
The Long Pond Association’s purpose is to:
- Promote the responsible use of the lake
- Stabilize and protect the water level
- Preserve Long Pond’s status as a complete recreational body of water
- Serve at the organized voice for its members with township and state government
I like this statement from their website: “Each lake is unique and each has its own group of people – the property owners and visitors to the lake – who are passionate about the quality of the lake and its future. It is human nature to protect what we care about, and it is up to everyone who cares about a particular lake to leave it clean as a legacy for future generations.”
I encourage you to check out their website and learn what they do!
