Clemons Pond Association
NEW (as of Spring 2017):
Maine VLMP Near Real-Time Lake Data
Per Victor Lerish, the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP) recently introduced a new website called VLMP Near Real-Time Lake Data.
This new site allows participating members to input their water's clarity data, which is then displayed as both raw data and plotted on a line chart.
In addition to seeing Clemons Pond data, visitors to VLMP's site can also view the same data from other participating Maine lakes and ponds.
Victor will update Clemons Pond data on the VLMP site going forward with all future readings.

Breathtaking Aerial Views of the Pond
Following are amazing aerial photos of Clemons Pond taken during Fall 2015 with a drone-based camera. Ethan Tucker, who is Victor and Joanna Lerish's son-in-law, operated the drone and camera. These photos provide rarely seen perspectives of the pond and vividly reveal how beautifully Big and Little Clemons Ponds knit into the surrounding topographic fabric.
Many thanks to Ethan for sharing these special views of Clemons Pond at such a spectacular time of year.
