BUILDING COMMUNITY TO PROTECT VULNERABLE RESOURCES

Chebacco lake &
watershed association

Chebacco Lake is a 209-acre Great Pond co-located in Essex and
Hamilton, Massachusetts approximately 30 miles north of Boston

Mission: inform, educate, & engage our members & local, regional, & state stakeholders in collective stewardship

Chebacco Lake and five tributary ponds comprise 10% of the 3,657-acre watershed. Human habitation throughout the watershed contributes to nutrient overloading and other stresses to the natural ecology, heightening the need for stewardship and collaboration. Founded in 1985, the Chebacco Lake & Watershed Association represents homeowners and residents and is open to all friends of the lake. It works closely with the Towns of Essex and Hamilton as well as the relevant agencies of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
