The mission of the Pawtuckaway Lake Improvement Association (PLIA) is to monitor and act upon environmental and safety issues that affect Pawtuckaway Lake, to educate the public on the conservation, protection, and improvement of water quality, natural shoreline, wildlife habitat, recreational resources, safety, and natural resources as they pertain to the welfare and interests of Pawtuckaway Lake. To that end, the PLIA collaborates with conservation commissions, planning boards, state and federal entities, land trusts and other conservation organizations working to conserve or protect natural resources that have an impact on the Lamprey River watershed that includes Pawtuckaway Lake. We invite you to explore these pages, become informed about our organization, come visit and enjoy our “little piece of paradise”, become a PLIA member, and consider joining our dedicated volunteers to help us achieve our mission. You’ll be in good company!

2019 Resource Booklet is Now Available
As a service to visitors, campers, vacationers, and residents on Pawtuckaway Lake, the PLIA has put together a “Welcome Booklet” designed to introduce our organization to the public and describe the opportunities that Pawuckaway offers to all. The last such Booklet was published in 2015. It was time for an update!
In this Booklet you will find a history of the PLIA, a description of its current Programs, information about Pawtuckaway Lake, some guidelines for enjoying and protecting the lake and its natural resources, and many references to other organizations or government agencies that team with us to keep the lake healthy and safe. We hope you will patronize the businesses that have sponsored this publication, and that you will become a member of the PLIA.
You’ll find it on the Menu bar and you can also click here to read it. Welcome to Pawtuckaway Lake!
