State Announces 2013 Fall Drawdown for Northwood Lake
Concord, NH-- The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) announced that the annual drawdown of Northwood Lake is scheduled to begin on or around October 14th, 2013. As in years past, the lake will be drawn down approximately six feet.
Support Northwood Lake While Enjoying Savings For Yourself!
This is truly a Win-Win for both our members and for our lake. Finally, a fundraiser that benefits the NLWA and you too. The NLWA is selling discount cards which feature merchants located throughout southern NH who have agreed to provide generous discounts for their products and services. The cost for a card is $20 but the savings to you is substantially greater even if you use only a few of the discount coupons. Save money when dining at some of your favorite restaurants such as The Common Man, T-Bones, CJ's, TGIF and Bertucci's. PLAY GOLF? Why not save money at some of the local favorite courses such as Beaver Meadow, Nippo Lake, Derryfield Country Club and Rochester Country Club.
100% of the proceeds will be used by the NLWA to support the various programs in place to benefit Northwood Lake and its watershed. This includes our Dive Program, now in its third year of removing and controlling the spread of invasive milfoil in our lake. The goal of the Dive Program is to control the spread of milfoil through the use of suction harvesting and hand pulling, rather than the use of chemical treatments. Not only is diving a healthier option for the lake, it is also less costly than using chemicals. The proposed budget for this program for 2013 is $10,000.
Proceeds will also be used to help fund the Lake Host program, the "blue shirts" we have posted at the public boat launch to educate boaters about invasive plants they can be bringing into or out of our precious lake. The NLWA is an all volunteer non-profit organization working hard to maintain the health and well-being of Northwood Lake. If we can sell 500 of these discount cards, it will mean $10,000 of profit to the NLWA! We really need your help to make this fundraiser a success. Please consider purchasing and/or selling some cards to family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. To purchase tickets or to get more information, please contact Maureen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-930-4415.
Check Out the Northwood Lake WebCam!
Updated hourly and positioned on the northeastern shore of the lake, the webcam gives those of you who are not presently on the lake a chance to view current conditions. Though the resolution is somewhat limited, you can still get an idea of weather, ice conditions and water level.
