Weed Control Documents

In an effort to educate the Lake Maspenock Membership and surrounding communities of Hopkinton, Milford and Upton, we have compiled some documentation for the support of herbicides to be used as a treatment source, along with other lake weed management guidelines and facts, to help preserve our most beautiful resource.  As always, please feel free to email LMPA with any any all concerns or questions.   lmpa.org@verizon.net
