Water Quality Protection

Water Quality Monitoring

The Cold Stream Pond Campowner's Association participates in the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program.

Currently, there are four certified water monitors: Jim Fenwood, Laurie Fenwood, Joel Deckler, Kathleen Baynes.

These volunteers monitor water quality twice a month at two monitoring stations (one in the Upper Basin and one in the Lower Basin). In addition, the CSCOA funds the collection of five water samples at each station which are analyzed for total phosphorous-- the most significant pollutant in the lake.
