The objectives of this project were twofold: First, a comprehensive land use inventory was undertaken to assist Maine DEP in developing a Phosphorus Control Action Plan (PCAP) and a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) report for the Webber Pond watershed. Simply stated, a TMDL is the total amount of phosphorus that a lake can receive without harming water quality. Maine DEP, with the assistance of the MACD Project Team, will address and incorporate public comments before final submission to the US EPA. Secondly, watershed survey work, including a shoreline and septic survey evaluation, were conducted by the Maine DEP-MACD project team to help assess total phosphorus reduction techniques that would be beneficial for the Webber Pond watershed. Watershed survey work included assessing direct drainage nonpoint source (NPS) pollution sites that were not identified during the Webber Pond Watershed Nonpoint Source Pollution Survey previously conducted in 1997. The China Region Lakes Alliance (CRLA) as part of its Watershed Management Plan (1998-2008) intends to conduct a comprehensive follow-up watershed survey. The results of this 1997 assessment report includes recommendations for future conservation work in the watershed to help citizens, organizations, and agencies restore and protect Webber Pond.
