Beginning on November 2, 2019 FirstLight will conduct a drawdown of Lake Lillinonah at the Shepaug Dam to conduct its maintenance and inspection activities. The normal summer operating range of the station is from 200’-195.5’ and the drawdown will target an elevation of 191’. The drawdown will lower lake levels to minimum pond levels and return to normal operating elevations on November 11, 2019.
All homeowners are also urged to remove structures, boat lifts, and docks from Lake Lillinonah to prevent ice or flood damage from occurring during the winter months. Any and all work planned to occur along the shoreline requires prior permitting from FirstLight.
The annual Friends Of The Lake debris survey is coming this Saturday, September 14 beginning at 8:00AM at the Route 133 boat ramp in Bridgewater.
Those interested in joining or possibly providing boat transportation are encouraged to call or contact George Walker at (203) 733-0692 or via email at email@example.com
