The Cold Stream Camp Owners’ Association (CSCOA), now with over 180 members, is dedicated to protecting and improving the water quality of Cold Stream Pond. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all dues and donations are tax deductible.
Cold Stream Pond is located within the towns of Lowell, Lincoln and Enfield. With a surface area of 3,628 acres, the lake has more than ten miles of shoreline. This frontage includes over three miles that are zoned as resource protection (250’ setback). But, with more than 500 lake-front properties, storm-water runoff from roads, homes and lawns cause erosion and sedimentation which have become the most important problems we face in protecting the water quality for future generations.
In addition to the above self-supporting activities, our association receives financial aid from the Town of Enfield for Lake Water Quality Preservation. Using those donations, CSCOA has continued to upgrade Enfield camp roads to reduce the problem of uncontrolled storm water runoff.
Undoubtedly most of these measures would not have been completed without the support of the Town of Enfield and we’d like to thank the Budget Committee, Town Manager, Board of Selectmen and all residents for their support of Cold Stream Pond.
