The Lake Gardner Bacteriological Study was completed by the Town of Amesbury to identify bacteria sources within the Lake’s watershed. A water monitoring program was conducted during the summer and fall of 2010 to identify and evaluate potential threats to water quality and develop Best Management Practices (BMPs) that address pollution sources. Land use evaluations and site specific investigations were completed to help identify pollution sources and direct improvement efforts. Long and short term remediation BMPs were developed to help the Town manage activities in the watershed and improve water quality in Lake Gardner.
