Lakes Management Plan

The QQLA Board of Directors has received the ESS proposal for 2015 lake management. At our April meeting we approved the plan and will have lake mapping performed early this spring followed by weed treatments as may be necessary.

Spencer Waste Water Treatment Plant

(Posted 5/22/15)
Members of QQLA had scheduled a meeting with EPA and MA DEP in January to do a site walk at the SWWTP and, as luck would have it, that was the start of the record snow falls of the winter. Consequently, our meeting never did happen and we are now working on a date for a new meeting. This will give us a chance to meet face to face with the two agencies and further explain our issues and concerns.

Welcome to QQLA

QQLA is a volunteer, non-profit organization of nearly 200 member families dedicated to preserving and protecting the quality of our two lakes (Quaboag and Quacumquasit are better known as North and South Ponds, and are located in Brookfield, East Brookfield and Sturbridge Massachusetts) and the surrounding watershed through the promotion of responsible, effective environmental policies.

QQLA Focus

Maintain healthy lake environment and water quality though regular water testing.

* Monitor for invasive vegetation species, algae, and phosphorus and other pollutants.
* Use best practices to manage water quality issues.
* Educate the lake community on best environmental practices.
* Communicate and coordinate our activities with the three towns, Brookfield, East Brookfield and Sturbridge and the Mass DEP.
* Foster and encourage a sense of community for QQLA members.
* Monitor water flow direction.
* Participate with East Brookfield in the operation of the flow barrier to prevent high water backflow into South Pond.

We invite you to tour this website and learn more about QQLA activities and encourage your involvement in QQLA.
