For more than twenty years, the PLA has been "Dedicated to preserving and enhancing all those elements that make Portage Lake a unique Aroostook County recreation area". Obviously, our efforts to physically protect the lake, primarily through our participation in the state's Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (http://www.mainevlmp.org/) , provide the PLA's most visible contribution to the community. But our interests do not stop there. We have long worked to increase public awareness of the wonderful community environment that Portage Lake offers. To the extent possible, we support ongoing efforts by the town and by other civic clubs and organizations to ensure that Portage Lake remains a vibrant year round setting in which to live, work and play.
An Act to Protect Maine Lakes: Act to Protect Maine Lakes by the 127th Legislature of Maine. This law prohibits application of fertilizer containing phosphorous or nitrogen within 25 feet of the normal high-water mark. This is important for anyone who lives or owns lakeshore property, but all Portage Lake residents and property owners should be familiar with this law.
