The Friends of Lake Quannapowitt invited members and friends to join them at their Annual Meeting and Presentation at Bear Hill Golf Club in Stoneham on Wednesday, May 24th. Guests enjoyed dinner and participated in the business meeting, followed by an educational presentation and discussion.
FOLQ invited Dominic Meringolo, Environmental Engineer for Solitude Lake Management, Inc., to present and discuss possible in-lake solutions being used to reduce persistent algae blooms and improve water quality in lakes and ponds. These solutions would complement and provide additional impact to the Town’s current efforts to limit nutrients and pollutants from entering the lake directly through storm water runoff. Finding a solution to limit the impact of in-lake phosphorous and over time providing a cleaner and safer lake remains an important goal of FOLQ.
Initiated in 2006, Bricks by the Lake is a program that raises funds for improvements in lakeside parklands while also enabling personal memorials on engraved bricks Located at Col. Connelly Park at the head of Lake Quannapowitt, the program is authorized by the Wakefield Town Council and administered by the Friends of Lake Quannapowitt.
Contributions from private individuals, civic groups, corporations, and foundations are vitally important to helping to renew, care, and advocate for the Lake and its surrounding valuable public greenspaces.
