In 2017, Bauneg Beg Lake Association (BBLA) created a $100 pledge program that netted the Association $7,500. Thank you to all who contributed! Projects included:

1_The coffer dam fabrication completed. Installation is scheduled for the spring.

2_The phosphorous barrier projects up river was installed. This project will reduce the amount of phosphorous flowing into the lake thus reducing the growth of weeds.

3_Ongoing water quality testing including Goodall Brook upstream in downtown Sanford.

4_Lost navigational buoys were replaced.

Projected projects for 2018:

1_Complete the coffer dam project. While the fabrication was completed in 2017, installation will be in the spring of 2018. This will allow the water level to be controlled more efficiently.

2_Continue water quality testing including the new barrier area and Goodall Brook.

3_A survey will be conducted of the remaining watershed to assess any future potential water quality improvements.

4_Replace aging navigational buoys.

Bauneg Beg Lake Association Install Three Phosphorus Barriers Into Brook.

Bauneg Beg Lake Association has teamed up with a Scarborough-based business, Mackworth-Enviro to install a prototype “Nutrient Removal Barrier” system to filter harmful phosphorus out of a feeder stream to the lake that has long been the source of excessive concentrations of the chemical element.

Bauneg Beg Lake is a 188-acre lake located in the Towns of North Berwick and Sanford.
Its direct watershed covers 14.8 square miles and includes agricultural areas
as well as high-density areas in downtown Sanford.
The lake’s shoreline is developed with over 200 seasonal and year-round homes.
Bauneg Beg Lake is an impounded segment of the Great Works River, which ultimately flows into the Salmon Falls River.

The association is also dedicated to the care and maintenance of the dam that creates the lake.
The dam committee works year round to insure the safety of the dam and to maintain the best level of the water.
