Is it a Pond or a Lake?
As the largest water body on the Pemaquid Peninsula, some call Pemaquid Pond “Pemaquid Lake”. What actually is the difference between a lake and a pond? Here’s what the Maine Department of Environmental Protection has to say about the distinction.
Concerned about the level of the water in your pond?
During the course of a year, the water level of the ponds in the Pemaquid River watershed can vary significantly. For information about factors that influence the ponds’ water levels, read this handout compiled by PWA: PWA and the Level of the Pond Water
