Connecticut Federation of Lakes Connecticut lakes need a voice to represent them with our elected officials on the local and state levels, to educate the public, and to help create an environmental ethic for lakes so they can become the healthy, desirable natural resources our families and friends deserve.
Although lakes have not been neglected, they have suffered over the years just as have the Sound and our rivers. High-density populations around lakes, septic problems, storm water runoff, acid rain, our lifestyles, erosion, nutrient loading, exotic weeds, etc. have damaged our lakes and ponds.
Our lakes are very fragile; but with public education, remedial programs and political action they can be protected. The CFL wants to help.
Formed in late 1995, the CFL is your partner, your resource, your sounding board, your clearing house and even your advocate in local, state, and national matters. The CFL wants to help your pond and lake and their watersheds to be healthier now and in the future.
Your established, young or just forming association should contact any officer to get help or offer help. The CFL has, or knows, folks who are very knowledgeable about lake and watershed management and who are willing to be of assistance. Let the CFL buddy up and be a mentor to help or give advice. The CFL wants to be there for others who are getting started. Please contact us.
