Soak Up the Rain New Hampshire (SOAK) is a voluntary program, managed by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), with the goal of protecting and restoring clean water in the state’s lakes, streams, and coastal waters from the negative impacts of stormwater pollution.
Soak Up the Rain Silver Lake is a partnership between the Silver Lake Land Trust, the Monadnock Conservancy and the people of Silver Lake. Click here to learn more about SOAK.
On August 7th lake association volunteers joined NHDES and the Monadnock Conservancy to clean out and rehab our very first rain garden. Judging by the truck loads of sediment removed from the garden, it appears to be doing its job well!
