Pembroke Watershed Association - P.O. Box 368, Pembroke MA 02359


   Furnace Pond will be treated for lily pads again in 4 weeks. At that time, the lily pads that haven't died will be sprayed again.  As soon as we have the exact date, we will post it on the website.
   Because boat activity causes wave action, and the chemical that is used to kill the lily pads is sprayed on the top of the pads, boats will be prohibited on the pond on the day and night of treatment.
   The Police will be on the pond to enforce the restriction of boats.
   Please contact Ray Holman at 339-613-7038 if you have questions.
   We appreciate your cooperation.

What is a Watershed?
A watershed consists of an area of land where run-off from higher elevations is channeled into a specific body of water such as a pond, lake, river, or ocean.  A watershed is a way to divide up landscapes, particularly when considering water issues.
Massachusetts has 27 major watersheds.  The Southeastern section of the Commonwealth consists of 5 major watershed areas, and the South Coastal Watershed is one of them.
Pembroke is one of 14 towns within the South Coastal Watershed.  The Pembroke Watershed Association is Pembroke’s own watershed.
Watershed groups, because of some issues specific to their particular locations, vary some in their goals.  However, the common thread they all share is clean water and addressing whatever needs to be done to correct and preserve it in their individual areas.  This means attracting members who will volunteer time, educate the public, work toward their goals, and seek funding to attain a satisfactory result.
