Don't Be Surprised by Low Water Levels

Don't be surprised if you notice low water levels in the pond. This is actually good news! The water department is doing some shore-line stabilization and needed to lower the water level by about 6". This is a temporary change ...water levels will soon return to normal.

This work is funded by donations to BPC including a substantial anonymous donation. Thanks to all of our donors, and special thanks to you Anonymous! Another great example of BPC and the City working together for improvements at the Pond.

This is just one of several strategies for addressing water quality concerns that were identified in the Lake Management Plan developed for BPC by B&L engineering in 2015. The Conservancy is working every day to identify resources to implement these improvements so that Buckingham Pond continues to provide a little bit of nature in the City for all the residents of Albany!  Read the Lake Management Plan here
