June 2022 Alum Treatment
The June 2022 alum treatment of Long Pond was a huge success! After suffering through a few rough years, the lake is once again, clear and pristine. Our success is due to the efforts of dedicated residents, members of the community and generous donors - both public and private.
If you are concerned about your lake and would like information about Long Pond's experience with the alum treatment process and the steps taken to secure state of Maine approval, please send an email with complete contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
