Non-Herbicide Committee to Meet on Thursday, August 23 — All Grantwriters Welcomed!

A brief meeting of the Sand Dam Reservoir Association Non-Herbicide Committee will take place on Thursday, August 23 at 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the home of committee chair, Carolyn Fortuna, 115 Sand Dam Road. Anyone who has experience writing grants is welcomed to attend.

The goals of the meeting are to review our winter grant writing and make a plan to move forward.


  1. Review idea for a steam cleaning program at the boat ramp that was presented to DEM last month. Lots of brainstorming occurred, and it seems that legislative changes would be needed to require boaters to be inspected.
  2. At the end of March, the team wrote the first draft of a grant to create swale ponds around the lake to catch road runoffs. A landscape architect looked at the grants and provided substantial feedback.
  3. At the end of January, our team wrote a grant to create our our lakesmart program. It would teach homeowners on the lake about ways that landscaping feeds nutrients into the lake and how different landscaping can serve as a barrier. We received an email that said we did not get the grant. What to do now?
