Planning for 2024 Invasive Plant Surveys has begun.  Please read an important message from Bob Capers, who is a local resident and a retired botanist with extensive knowledge of invasive plants. We need volunteers for the upcoming season.

The 30 Mile River Watershed Association has water quality webpages for all three of the association ponds on the 30 Mile website. On each "lake page" you can find links to the most recent annual water quality reports (also attached), historical data, depth maps, and more. 

Most importantly, these webpages are updated after every monitoring trip so that lake residents can view near-live data as it is  collected throughout the current monitoring season. 

Basin and David Ponds have been monitored annually since 2016 by 30 Mile staff (bi-weekly, May through October). Tilton Pond is typically monitored annually as well (1x per season), but 30 Mile did not monitor in 2020 or 2021 due to staffing issues during/after covid. However, this year 30MRWA was successful in securing new funding to support more monitoring on Tilton Pond (monthly, July through Sept) and we hope to continue next season if funding allows. Thank you to Whitney Bakeer, 30MRWA Program Director. If you have questions, contact Whitney at whitney@30mileriver.org
