Meeting Monday to kick-off project addressing water quality impairments in Moultonborough Bay Inlet

MOULTONBOROUGH — On Monday, October 27, the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Association in partnership with FB Environmental Associates, and the Town of Moultonborough, will hold a kick-off meeting at the Moultonborough Public Library, at 6 p.m., to present an overview of a project to address water quality impairments in Moultonborough Bay Inlet (MBI), the northernmost feature of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Moultonborough Bay Inlet has historically exhibited excessive levels of in-lake total phosphorus (TP) when compared to the other seven sub-basins which comprise Lake Winnipesaukee. In addition to Lake Winnipesaukee's current impairment for cyanobacteria, several waterbodies within the MBI sub-watershed are listed on the State's 305(b)/303(d) list for failure to fully support aquatic life use due to elevated concentrations of chlorophyll-a, insufficient dissolved oxygen, excessive total phosphorus (TP), and non-native aquatic plants (milfoil).

The Moultonborough community has made water quality protection a high priority, investing considerable resources both financial and voluntary labor over the past five years. To assist the community in focusing their efforts, the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Association (LWWA) has been awarded a NHDES Watershed Assistance grant to begin the development and implementation of a restoration plan that will identify sources of pollutants within the Moultonborough Inlet sub-watershed that have led to the impairments and propose measures to address those sources.

All are welcome to attend the kick-off meeting. For additional information, contact Pat Tarpey, LWWA at 603-581-6632 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Spiritual laws of success series starts Wednesday

MEREDITH — Life coach Emily Clement at Grace Wellness Center in Meredith is offering a seven-week workshop The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. The seven-week series will meet on Wednesday evenings (excluding Thanksgiving evening), 6-7:30 pm, starting Wednesday, October 29. The cost of the seven-week series is $125.

Clement says many of us grew up with the belief that achieving success requires relentless hard work, grim determination and intense ambition. ''As a result, we may have struggled for years and even reached some of our goals but wound up feeling exhausted, our lives out of balance. As Deepak Chopra observes in his transformational book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, such desperate striving isn't necessary or even desirable. In the natural world, creation comes forth with ease. A seed doesn't struggle to become a tree―it simply unfolds in grace.''

She says that the Seven Spiritual Laws are powerful principles people can use to fulfill their deepest desires with grace and ease. Each week is dedicated to one of the seven spiritual laws. Participants will discuss the law, experience a 15-minute meditation, and complete a creative project.

Reserve a space by calling Emily Clement (603) 520-6300 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
