My husband and I are looking for a lake front home on Lake Boon. Please contact me at [email protected] if you are considering selling your home or know of anyone who is. Thank you. Carol
We recently moved to Lake Boone. I have a 17 Foot open bow boat that I am looking to leave in the water for a while yet. I am concerned that the public launch will be unusable when they draw the water down starting this week. Does anyone know who owns the other launches on the lake? I would be happy to rent the use of a launch . Thanks
My wife and I are looking to purchase a home on Lake Boon. If anyone knows anyone that is considering selling, Please have them contact me. Ed George [email protected] 978-443-3311 Thanks!!

Thinking about future residence on this lake. I'm a sailor. 15' day sailor. What is the wind on the lake on a good day?

Hello Boonies,

This Wednesday, April 22nd is the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day and a good time for those of us at home not working to continue the Lake Boon roadside cleanup tradition. This timing allows picking up the winter accumulation before poison ivy and other growth makes it more difficult.

Besides the aesthetics, clean roads and neighborhoods are part of our Watershed Management Plan to prevent anything from blowing into the lake or clogging storm drains. There are at least 8 miles of roads around Lake Boon so there's plenty of room for social distancing! Be sure to wear bright clothing if you will be on the busy roads and wear gloves. Put collected bags out with your normal trash.

Thanks for your participation!

We have now reached the full drawdown level of Lake Boon for winter, at 14” below norm. Drawdown began on Oct 10, and it has now stabilized, with a steady outflow that matches inflow from rain, aquifers and streams. Last week, ice began appearing in the shallower basins. Sharpen your skates. Winter is coming!

For any questions on the drawdown, contact Dan Barstow, Lake Boon Commission, 978-235-3300, [email protected]

LAKE BOON WATER LEVEL to be LOWERED

The fall Lake Boon drawdown, done each year, will begin with the removal of the first board at the Barton Road dam on Oct 7, 2019 or soon thereafter. Lake residents should take this into consideration when scheduling removal of boats and/or shoreline repairs or clean-up. The level will go down slowly over the next few weeks, approximately 14 inches by end of November. This is in accord with the Conservation Commission Superseding Order of Conditions. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Dan Barstow ([email protected]) of the Lake Boon Commission.

The Nashoba Board of Health took the second sample for algae and toxin testing on Sept 17 and the results came back with algae cell count approximately double the allowed limit although toxins were again below the detectable limit. However, because the cell count is a leading indicator that toxins may be released as cells die, the recommendation to the Stow Board of Health is to keep the beach closed and maintain the advisory not to swim and keep animals away from the rest of the lake. (It should be noted that the Nashoba representative wore a bathing suit to get the necessary representative sample from water 3 ft deep because the town beach docks had been removed for the season!)

Separately, a representative from Solitude Lake Management was on the lake today assessing the pondweed situation in the first basin for review in planning possible treatment next year.
