The East Pond Association is an incredibly active and enthusiastic volunteer membership of a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of East Pond. This lake is a 1,800 acre spring-fed lake located in the towns of Oakland and Smithfield in Maine. The purpose of the East Pond Association is 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 also partnered in innovative water quality improvement studies and pilot projects through Colby College, the University of Maine, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, and the Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Department.
