Lakes and Ponds Program

The Division of Conservation and Recreation works hard to protect the habitats and recreational opportunities of our lakes and ponds.

Our Lakes and Ponds Program works primarily in the DCR State Park system to protect, manage and restore our valuable aquatic resources. We also provide technical assistance to communities and citizen groups, help to monitor water quality at various public beaches to ensure public safety, and provide educational materials to the public about various lake issues.

With this Program, we are striving to ensure a safe future for Massachusetts' lakes and ponds through citizen involvement and education.
