Traffic Issues Due to ConstructionAs most of you know, there is a great deal of construction around the lake with an increased number of large machines and vehicles. Unfortunately, there has also been an increase in the number of cars illegally parked and, in some cases, completely blocking one lane of the road. The police are aware of the problem and have asked us to report illegally parked vehicles so they can be ticketed. If you see any illegally parked vehicles, please phone the police at 860-868-9671 with the location.
Seaplane OrdinanceOn June 17, the town of Kent passed the Seaplane Ordinance which bans seaplanes and all other aircraft from landing on Lake Waramaug. Now that Warren, Kent and Washington have all passed this ordinance, it is illegal for any type of aircraft to land on Lake Waramaug. If you witness aircraft attempting to land on the Lake, try to either jot down the identification number or take a photo with your cell phone.
