Pictures from 2020 Columbus Day weekend walk and highway cleanup

Hello Everyone, 

We had a great turnout for the second Fall walk during Columbus Day weekend. We had beautiful weather and many people stopped by for coffee, cider, and donuts. It was great to see everyone, including kids and dogs from the neighborhood. We also organized a highway cleanup along Route 113. Thank you to Bob Ingram, who organized the cleanup, and to the many volunteers who helped on a gorgeous Saturday morning. We collected 28 bags of garbage with lots of beverage cans and bottles. The volunteers who came out to help were John, Sharon, Bob, Phil, Julie, Susu, Bev, Kerry, Roger, and Janet. Click here for the pictures from 2020 and 2019: https://flic.kr/ps/Mra2R

The EPOA was unable to organize our regular social events indoors this year due to the pandemic, but we had fun seeing some of you outdoors.  At least during this year, we were fortunate to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Eidelweiss. We hope that 2021 will enable us to do some more outdoor events.

Thank you for your support.  Happy Holidays!

Presentation on Pea Porridge Water and Invasive Aquatic Plants

It was wonderful having Sara Steiner to present on our pond water quality and invasive aquatic plants commonly found in NH On September 14, 2019, at the Lodge. Sara is the VLAP Coordinator for Watershed Management Bureau at the NH Department of VLAPEnvironmental Services.

The presentation was well-attended with over twenty residents and they asked a lot of questions concerning the environment.  Here are some notes that we took from the meeting.

Overall, our pond water is in good shape compared to the other lakes. The PH is slightly below average. Sara said using phosphorus-free fertilizer will help to keep the quality of the pond water. Just because fertilizer is organic, it doesn’t mean phosphorus-free.

It is important to know the capacity of your septic tank and if you have more people such as renters using your septic tank than it’s intended for, it could cause sewage runoffs. Septic tank should be pumped every 3 years and every year if your property is on the shore.

Cyanobacteria happen when the water gets warmer and it can be toxic for dogs and caused a rash on humans.
