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
