Indian Lake Watershed Association
Little Indian Lake is a subsidiary man-made resource that serves the community of Worcester, Massachusetts. Unfortunately, the construction of a state high way has impeded water flow from this lake and the large adjoining water body. In turn, this has caused algal blooms to occur and has raised safety concerns in regards to organic nutrient levels. This project characterized the existing conditions, wildlife, and the bordering watersheds that have impacted the lake's condition and recommendations for the Indian Lake Watershed Association were provided for future management. The results collected will be utilized for grant funding for the association with the objective to restore the aesthetic beauty and recreational potential of Little Indian Lake.
