Abstract
The objectives of this project were twofold: First, a comprehensive land use inventory was undertaken by the Colby College Environmental Assessment Team (CEAT) to assist Maine DEP in developing a Phosphorus Control Action Plan (PCAP) and a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) report for the Long Pond watershed. Simply stated, a TMDL is the total amount of phosphorus that a lake can receive without harming water quality. Maine DEP, with assistance from FB Environmental staff, will fully address and incorporate public comments before final submission to the US EPA. Secondly, watershed assessment work was conducted by CEAT to help assess total phosphorus reduction techniques that would be beneficial for the Long Pond watershed. The results of this assessment include recommendations for future conservation work in the watershed to help citizens, organizations, and agencies restore and protect Long Pond.
