Confusion over the spelling of Lake Wicwas was settled with a stroke of the governor’s pen on Tuesday, as Chris Sununu signed into law SB 132, a bill sponsored by Sen. Bob Guida and Meredith representatives Glen Aldrich, Harry Bean, Deanna Jurius, and Jonathan Mackie.

The proper spelling of the Meredith lake was never a question to local residents, but the state has used two spellings, including on a sign alongside Route 104 which spells it “Wickwas.” That sign was still up on Wednesday morning, but will have to be replaced with the enactment of the Senate bill.
