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 Annabessacook Lake 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 CWD and MACD, will address and incorporate public comments before final submission to the U.S. EPA. Secondly, watershed survey work, including a shoreline survey evaluation, was conducted by CWD to assess total phosphorus reduction techniques that would benefit the Annabessacook Lake watershed. Watershed survey work included assessing direct drainage nonpoint source (NPS) pollution sites. The results of this assessment include recommendations for future conservation work in the watershed to help citizens, organizations, and agencies restore and protect Annabessacook Lake water quality.
