West Pond Home
West Pond Association
Is a not-for-profit cooperative. Our goal is to control the invasive Curly Leaf Pond Weed (Potamogeton crispus) which contaminated our pond in the early 2000's and to contain it in the pond. We also maintain and operate the outlet/dam as required by state law. We test and monitor the pond water quality, promote public safety and safeguard the pond's wildlife and environment.
