Yes It Sinks, But It’s Still Trash.

Amy Smith of Hi-Vu Road spent a few hours snorkeling along the western shore of the lake. During this time she collected a significant amount of trash from the bottom of the lake. As you can see in the photo, its pretty gross and pretty dangerous.

  • Bottles get broken and make for terrible foot injuries.
  • Step on a rusty can, and be prepared to spend some time in the ER.
  • Ropes and flags get wrapped up in motors.

Please carry out whatever you bring out on the lake… whether its boating in the summer months, or ice-fishing during the winter.

Amy is a Gorham resident and teaches at the high school. Amy spends her summers on Watchic Lake. Thank you Amy for doing this work for the lake and lake users.
