10 December 2013: The Fall 2013 Water Column, a publication of the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program

secchi_diskThe Maine VLMP has published their Fall 2013 newsletter “The Water Column” and with 24 pages packed with pictures and information, it’s well worth downloading.  Also available at that page are previous issues of The Water Column dating back to 1999. The Clary Lake Association has been a supporting member of the VLMP since 1975. See our Volunteer Lake Water Monitor Program page for more information.

One of the articles I found particularly interesting is the one about the invasive Chinese Mystery Snails which I have seen in Damariscotta lake. They’re not in Clary Lake that I’m aware of, at least not yet anyways. They’re prepared a cool Google map showing the lakes in Maine where this snail has been identified.

They’ve also got a new web site Lakes of Maine which I’ve only just started looking at. Lots of cool information including the above map about Chinese Mystery Snails.
