Lower Narrows Restoration – Update

Update on the lower narrows restoration project. We have found some pump parts, such as the wear plate, have a relatively short useful life with our abrasive sand. We have changed plates in the pump but estimate the useful life to be two to three days! At just this side of $100 they are a supply item we will have to prepare for. We have also noticed wear beginning on the pump housing itself, this of course will be a more expensive part to replace but should last substantially longer than the wear plates. The use of PVC pipe has allowed us to place the sand farther away from the pump quite inexpensively and it works well. If you have passed through the narrows, you will notice they are deeper and wider. Work will continue. Your support is always welcome by either becoming a member of Little Sebago Lake Association or making a contribution. These activities are funded by residents of the lake.
