Walker Pond Improvements Project
Walker Pond has the potential to support boating and fishing as well as skating in the winter months, but due to nutrient and sediment loading from the pond’s watershed, the waterbody has significantly deteriorated in recent years. The primary recreational uses of the pond have been fishing, skating, bird watching, and quiet contemplation.
Walker Pond is choked with excessive aquatic vegetation that needs to be removed for the health of the pond. A three-phase capital improvement project was proposed and approved by the Select Board in 2021.
A Phased Project Strategy
The Walker Pond Improvement Project is a multi-phased project broken into three (3) categories of activities to address the water quality of Walker Pond.
