Courtesy Boat Inspection Program
The LPA participates in the Maine Department of Environmental Protection's Courtesy Boat Inspection (CBI) program. Long Pond's CBI program is funded by a combination of individual donations and grants. We received $2000 in grant money from the State of Maine as well as $2000 per year from the Town of Parsonsfield since 2010. We thank them as well as all who have made donations to keep this program running.
Paid inspectors are stationed at the boat ramp on the south end of the pond from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend.

The LPA asks for dues/donations (suggested $40) from each household to help meet the budgets for both the CBI program and the Association itself. The budgets for both are listed below. Donations can be sent to CBI Treasurer Eleanor Watson (95 East Shore Drive, Parsonsfield, ME 04047) and made payable to LPA CBI Program.
