PROTECTING & ENJOYING Lake Lillinonah SINCE 2003
Posted: September 25, 2020
Lake Lillinonah - Beginning on November 2, 2020 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 estimated elevation of 191’. The drawdown will lower lake levels to minimum pond levels and return to normal operating elevations on November 13th, 2020. All homeowners are also urged to remove structures, boatlifts, 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.
