PPA Data Buoy Launched
In collaboration with Prof. Holly Ewing of Bates College (on left in photo, with Phil Boissonneault, in Pete Leitner's boat) PPA has launched a data buoy at the "deep hole" of Panther Pond. This buoy will continuously record water temperature, and (later) dissolved oxygen, to further the studies of gloeotrichia and overall lake health. Boaters and water skiers are asked to avoid the buoy. Please alert your neighbors. For further information, please contact PPA or Prof. Ewing. You can learn more about this effort at the PPA annual meeting on July 9.
