The PLPA was incorporated in 1969 by local residents wanting to provide for its long-term protection. Since then, the PLPA has kept a watchful eye over the lake’s water quality, wildlife, boating safety, dam and water level.
In 2006 the articles of agreement and by-laws were revised to better reflect the increased array and complexity of the lake’s yearly activities. Those revisions also helped the PLPA qualify as a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.
As you explore the many aspects of the PLPA and the important work it does, please consider becoming a member. Pleasant Lake is a natural treasure and we all need to work hard to protect and preserve our lake and its watershed for generations to come.
For all who visit or live in New London, NH, or the surrounding communities, the importance of Pleasant Lake to our sense of place, and the regional watershed is unquestionable. The Pleasant Lake Protective Association, as a recognized 501 (c) 3 tax exempt non-profit organization, is dedicated to responsible stewardship of the lake’s quality, natural beauty, and recreational opportunities.Join Us Now
Pleasant Lake reminds all anglers that a new law increasing protection for loons from lead fishing tackle went into effect in 2016. This current law bans the SALE and the freshwater USE of lead sinkers and jigs weighing one ounce or less. What’s in your tackle box and on your fishing line? Please dispose of the old lead tackle properly. Please obey the law and stop using lead tackle!Learn More
