Adams Pond and Knickerbocker Lake are the water bodies on which the Boothbay region depends for its public water supply. While we depend on these ponds for our water, the ponds themselves are completely dependent on the watersheds that surround them. What happens in the watersheds – all the land that drains to the ponds – is a major determinant of water quality and quantity.
In recognition of the importance of our drinking water and watershed protection, Boothbay Region Water District staff will be out picking up litter along the roadsides in the Adams Pond watershed on May 6.
We encourage other Adams Pond and Knickerbocker Lake watershed residents, and any other interested citizens, to join in this effort on May 6 or any day that works for them.
The Water District will take care of trash cleanup on Route 27 but if you want to clean up other watershed roadsides, please check in with us. We can loan you high visibility vests. We will provide trash bags and can pick up filled trash bags from the roadside – if you contact us in advance.
