Water Quality Status
Public perception (as understood by DEC):

The water quality is generally considered very good.

DEC assessment:

Some reports of siltation/sedimentation have been received about a few areas of the lake

Comments and Recommendations:

The residents should become involved in the Lake Protection Program to investigate and address watershed sources of erosion. Forest Lake is considered "threatened" by a Eurasian watermilfoil infestation because of its proximity to an already infested lake (North Montpelier Pond).
