Contact State and City Representatives TODAY
 
Last year's closure has brought a lot of issues affecting Indian Lake to the forefront. We have the attention of our City and State government and we are determined to turn this negative into a positive. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
 
City and State funding is needed to pay for critical improvements to restore Indian Lake including monies for pre-dredging permitting, removal of nutrient filled sediment from the lake, adding critical storm water controls at Ararat Brook and improving the water movement through the Sears Island Causeway.
 
We need you to send letters to state and city representatives immediately to remind them of how important Indian Lake is to tax payers.

  

Water Watchers
 
It is important that we all become champions for our watershed. Watch for signs of dumping into storm drains or waterways or clogged storm drains. Please report to the City of Worcester customer service line at 508-929-1300.
