Welcome to East Pond
The East Pond Association is an incredibly active and enthusiastic volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of East Pond. This 1,800 acre spring-fed lake is located in the towns of Oakland and Smithfield in Maine. We hope this website helps you understand the delicate ecology of our lake.
The East Pond Association is a Maine Non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation formed in 1997 under the Internal Revenue Code.
Protect & Enhance
Through education, fund raising and other proper activities, the association promotes the protection and enhancement of the water quality of East Pond helping preserve its ecological, economic, recreational and aesthetic value.
Inform & Educate
The association works to inform and educate interested parties in the ways they can help to protect and improve the water quality of the lake by controlling erosion and run-off and minimizing developmental impact.
The East Pond Association is partnered in innovative water quality improvement studies and pilot projects through Colby College, the University of Maine, 7 Lakes Alliance, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, and the Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Department. We celebrate the dedication and collaboration of these fine institutions and agencies.
