Crescent Lake Watershed Restoration Project
Celebrates Completion of Phase II of the Plan
A Crescent Lake celebration picnic was held on Thursday, August 25, 2016, at the Raymond Public Beach on Rt. 85. Its purpose was to celebrate the completion of Phase II of the Crescent Lake Watershed Restoration Project which began in 2014 and wraps up next month.
Those attending toured several recently completed lake protection sites including the buffer planting at the town beach, the boat launch stabilization project and drainage improvements on Rt. 85. A Project Summary was distributed, providing a financial report, history of the grant and information about site improvements completed to date.

It works with other organiza-tions that share this purpose and coordinates activities to minimize unnecessary duplication of efforts.
