Safe or Unsafe

1)      It is safe to enjoy the lake on sunny days but please remember to use sun screen, we want long lived LWA members.

 2)      It is NOT safe to bring firewood from out of state.  There is presently a state quarantine prohibiting it unless the firewood has been heat treated. This prevents unwanted bugs like the emerald ash borer from coming to NH.

 3)      It is NOT safe for swimmers or others if you feed the ducks and geese. Duck poop can cause swimmers itch and goose poop may ruin your lawn or you may slip and fall as you step on it.

 4)      Drive water skiers safely by looking forward in the boat. The observer makes sure the skier is OK and the driver makes sure that all boats and people in front of the boat are SAFE..

 5)      It is NOT safe to just “forget about” pumping your septic system periodically. An ounce of prevention can prevent five digit expenses to build a new system.

 6)      Our safe boating laws do keep us all SAFE. They are in place to save lives.

 7)      Keep our loons and eagles safe by staying away from them and avoiding loud noises when you are near them. Close approach or loud noises can stress or panic the birds. Panicked birds may do dumb things and injure themselves.

 8)      Play it safe with lightning. Lightning can strike up to a few miles from the “rainy” part of the storm. Lightning has killed people on Lake Wentworth and don’t be next one.

 9)      It may compromise the safety of those who live in or around the lake (birds, fish, animals and humans), if you put bad stuff like litter, soaps and other chemicals in the lake. Preventing spills of gasoline is very important. Be careful. Fertilizing around the shores to make green lawns will also make a green lake. Save our lake.

 10)  It is safe to take time out to enjoy sunsets or sunrises as long as you don’t walk off your dock or boat as you gawk.
