Due continued work on the Lake Zoar dam, additional ponding may occur on Lake Lillinonah over the May 8th weekend causing the water level to be higher than normal. Higher water levels generally increase the amount of floating debris in the lake so caution should be exercised when using the lake for recreational purposes.
From our friends at Friends of The Lake - It is that time of year again when they need your help with the annual 'Save the Lake Day' cleanup of Lake Lillinonah.
Volunteers, please gather at the route 133 boat launch in Bridgewater at 9AM on Saturday, May 30. You'll be transported around the lake to collect man-made debris from the shoreline.
If you can provide a pontoon boat, or other boat to transport people around the lake and retrieve folks with their collections, please contact FOTL by sending a note to info@friendsofthelake.
The 2014 Fall lake drawdown will be held this year starting on November-10th and will run through to November-16th. The lake level will be dropped down to the 190' elevation line.

The 2013 Fall lake drawdown will be held this year starting on October-30th and will run through to November-17th. The lake level will be dropped down to the 186' elevation line. For boat owners that were not able to remove their boats before the state boat ramp at the Route-133 bridge was closed for renovations, Newtown Parks & Recreation has allowed local boat owners the use of the Newtown town ramp to remove their boats. This ramp is located at the end of Hanover Road in Newtown. The ramp is available only to REMOVE boats that are still in the water and will be open Saturday & Sunday for the last two weekends of October (10/19 and 10/26). Thanks to Amy and the town of Newtown for giving boat owners this option. Please note, if there are any issues or for some reason the gate is locked, please call the Lake Authority phone line at (203) 364-4002.
