If you’ve already donated or pledged, we can’t thank you enough for saving beautiful Lake Kanasatka! If you haven’t donated or pledged yet, time is short but we know we can count on you to join with 171 of your neighbors and help put us over the top. Help us today, PLEASE!

We knew that raising the money for the alum treatment would be a long road. We launched the Capital Campaign as soon as we realized a May 2024 treatment was possible. With limited treatment details available last fall, we did our best to come up with a reasonable fundraising target.

As much more study of Lake Kanasatka’s specific requirements has been completed, we’ve been advised that our initial estimate was significantly short. Given the analysis by FB Environmental and NHDES to date, and the need to account for rising material costs, the revised estimate is $450,000. In addition, we’ll be required to cover the costs of third-party testing and monitoring before, during, and after the treatment process. We understand how important it is to provide everyone with the most current information as soon as it is available. We will continue to keep you informed throughout the treatment process. The February edition of our “Water Matters” newsletter will contain more details.

If you have not yet sent in your contribution, please do so now. It would also be helpful if you could send in your pledged amounts as soon as possible so we can move forward in a strong financial position. We need everyone’s support. Please contribute what you can and let us know if you have questions by sending them to [email protected] so we can answer your FAQs as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance for helping to restore Lake Kanasatka to its former glory.
