Interview: NH Lakes

Meet Krystal Balanoff, Conservation Program Manager

NH LAKES Mission: To keep New Hampshire’s lakes clean and healthy, now and in the future. We work with partners, promote clean water policies and responsible use, and inspire the public to care for our lakes.

NH LAKES: Why We Do What We Do

  • The care of lakes is in the trust of the current generation who use them. It is up to us to protect them.
  • It takes a community to make a lasting difference. We must inspire others to make a difference.
  • New Hampshire lakes are threatened.
  • Invasive species continue to spread to more lakes, and there is an increasing number of species, despite our best efforts to prevent their spread.
  • Polluted water runoff from the landscape continues to degrade water quality.
  • Our lakes attract as many visitors and recreationalists as the weather and access allows and economic conditions support, resulting in heavy lake usage.
  • Climate change will continue to impact lakes in ways we’ve never experienced.
