April 30, 2016

To: Lake Area Residents

As many of you know, Hopkinton’s Annual Town Meeting takes place Monday, May 2nd at 7:00, in the Hopkinton Middle School auditorium.  There will be an item concerning funding for the control of excessive aquatic weeds at Lake Maspenock in the budget.  The “Lake Maspenock Weed Management and Control Advisory Group”, formed at the direction of the Hopkinton Selectmen, has been thoroughly evaluating this issue over the last 7 or 8 months.  A professional consultant, with extensive lake management knowledge, was hired by the town to assist and advise the town committee.  The purpose of the Town’s Advisory Group is to identify the type and scope of the problem and evaluate ALL available methods of controlling the excessive weed growth.  Each method of weed control is being rated in terms of safety, effectiveness, cost and feasibility.  The goal of the Group is to create a long-term plan for managing the lake.  No recommendations have been made yet, and it is anticipated that their evaluation will not be ready until late summer or early fall.  At that time the Group’s recommendations will be presented to the public and Selectmen.  The Selectmen will make any decisions concerning the Group’s findings and they will control if, when, and how any funds are spent.  The public will have opportunities to ask questions and provide input prior to any final decisions being made.  It is important that the requested funds, included in the budget for the coming year, be available to implement the weed control method or methods ultimately approved by the Selectmen.

The Lake Maspenock Executive Board supports the Weed Control Advisory Group and believes they are performing an extensive evaluation of the problem and the options available to solve it.  It is clear that whatever recommendation is ultimately made by the Group to the town will have been objectively arrived at.  The LMPA Executive Board urges all to attend Town Meeting to support the funding requested for the control of the excessive aquatic weed growth.  If additional information is desired, please go to and select the link to the “Aquatic Vegetation Advisory Group”.

It is anticipated that the topic will come up early on in the meeting so please be on time.


Thank you,


The Officers and Executive Board

Bald Eagle Nesting

There are now more eagles nesting in Massachusetts than any time in the recent past, and we need your help keeping track of them! Please report eagle sightings to Andrew Vitz (MassWildlife’s State Ornithologist, Many of our nesting eagles are banded with coded-color bands that identify the individual, so make sure to look for these leg bands whenever you see or photograph an eagle. We are particularly interested in getting reports of birds carrying sticks. When there is evidence of a new breeding territory, our staff verifies the report as they monitor known nests. MassWildlife will conduct its Spring Eagle Survey on Friday, April 8. The Survey consists of coordinated teams of staff and volunteers who spread out across the state to check on historic nest sites and look for new nests.
