Testing the Water on Bradley Lake

With Tom Voss (right) at the helm of his pontoon boat, NH Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) volunteer coordinator Sara Steiner (far left) oversees volunteers, Susan Chase (taking notes) and Mike Vercellotti, as they collect Bradley Lake water samples for laboratory testing on a sunny summer morning. Steiner summarized the lab results, “Bradley Lake test results fall within good to excellent ranges and are indicative of high-quality water. NHDES applauds lakeside property owners and users of the lake for helping to keep Bradley Lake a high-quality drinking water source.” Vercellotti is a water commissioner for the Andover Village District, which provides drinking water to about 125 Andover Village households and Proctor Academy.
