Massachusetts State Senator, Anne Gobi, has announced the release of $50,000 worth of funding for the Lake Wickaboag dredging work, GoLocalWorcester informs. 

Commenting the latest release, Senator Gobi said: “I have been proud to partner with the Lake Association, and I share their concern for the long term health of the lake. I look forward to continuing this work and assisting preservation efforts so future generations may also be able to enjoy it.”

Located in the town of West Brookfield, the lake covers approximately 320 acres and is a popular recreation destination year-round for fishing, swimming and boating.

During the project, approximately 350.000m³ of sediment will be removed from the 75 acres of the north cove of Lake Wickaboag, creating two pools 6-8 feet deep and increasing the depth of the area by 4 to 6 feet.

According to the announcement, the project will help remediate the high phosphorous levels, algae blooms, and weeds needed to maintain healthy animal life.
