Former UMaine Researcher Talks to MPBN About Water Clarity Study

The Maine Public Broadcasting Networkinterviewed former University of Maine researcher Ian McCullough about a study he co-authored on Maine water quality. The study analyzed data from 547 lakes and large ponds throughout the state and found water clarity — which is a strong indicator of water quality — is declining. McCullough said although the results are discouraging, property owners and lake associations can do several things to help water quality such as restoring shoreline buffers or updating septic systems of lakefront homes.
