Our Mission

The Trickey Pond Environmental Protection Association (TPEPA) is dedicated to maintaining the quality of the lake and preserving its pristine environment through public education and taking measures to ensure that non-native invasive plant species are not introduced into its waters.

Our Activities

Ongoing activities include:

·     Complimentary public boat inspection by Lakes Environmental Association (LEA) trained inspectors made possible by your contributions and by a partial matching grant from Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

·      Constant water surveillance for non-native invasive plant species, including Milfoil, one of the most devastating species to Maine lakes.

·      Water quality testing throughout the season.

 

·      Monitoring and protection of the loon habitat.

Current Lake Conditions

The most recent Trickey Pond Health Study conducted by the Cumberland County Soil and Water Conservation District shows that our lake quality is in decline. More than ever, it is important that we continue our efforts to preserve the natural beauty and overall health of this habitat.
