Waukewan is a major asset for the Town of Meredith, both as a recreational resource and as the sole source for the municipal water system, serving approximately 3,000 residents and downtown businesses. But the lake suffers from elevated bacteria, cyanobacteria, low pH, and low dissolved oxygen. Led by the Lake Winnipesaukee Association, a group of local lake associations, residents, and community officials have worked with scientists and NHDES to develop the Lake Waukewan and Winona Watershed Restoration Plan (Lake Winona empties into Lake Waukewan by way of the Snake River). The plan, developed with the help of FB Environmental Associates and DK Water Resources Consulting is part of a long-term strategy to address water quality problems in both lakes by focusing on reducing sediment and nutrient loading to the waterbodies.
