Knickerbocker Lake shoreline survey July 17

Posted:  Wednesday, July 11, 2018 - 8:30am

Boothbay Region Water District staff will join with Forrest Bell Environmental Associates to conduct a shoreline survey of Knickerbocker Lake on Tuesday, July 17.

A shoreline survey documents the condition of the shoreline for each parcel of land using a scoring system that evaluates vegetated buffer, presence of bare soil, extent of shoreline erosion, distance of structures from the lake and slope. The survey will be conducted from the water district’s boat. The map and data collected will highlight areas that are possibly contributing to polluted runoff and be used to prioritize areas of the shoreline for remediation.
