The McWain Pond Association is a group of homeowners on or near the shores of McWain Pond in Waterford, Maine. Our primary goals are to preserve the water quality of the pond and the gentle quality of the environment around the pond for future generations.

The association is deeply involved with the activities of the Lakes Environmental Association (LEA). Our most significant project is the Watershed Survey which was approved and implemented with the generous support of many State and local agencies.

McWain Pond September 2010 Plant Survey Report

Before undertaking changes or activities that modify land within the 100-foot shoreline buffer zone, it is recommended one read the Shoreland Code first and then call Colin Holme at LEA.  Colin knows how the code is being interpreted.  For example concepts like “limbing trees” are not too clear to most folks.

We want our shoreline to be protected and our residents to be safe and sure that the Shoreland Code is not being violated and they are not being exposed to enforcement procedures.
