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 Pleasant 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 CWD and MACD Project Team, will address and incorporate public comments before final submission to the US EPA. Secondly, watershed survey work, including a shoreline survey and agricultural land use evaluation, were conducted by CWD staff to assess applicable total phosphorus reduction techniques that would be beneficial for the Pleasant Pond watershed. Watershed survey work included assessing direct drainage nonpoint source (NPS) pollution sites from public (state and town) roadways that were not identified during the CWDs Nonpoint Source Pollution Survey of agricultural lands and town and state roadways within the immediate watershed in 1999/2000 and of camp/private roads conducted in the spring of 2000 in cooperation of Kennebec County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) and the Four Towns Watershed Association (FTWA). The results of this assessment include recommendations for future conservation work in the watershed to help citizens, organizations, and agencies restore and protect Pleasant Pond.
