About Friends of the Lake

Our Mission
Friends of the lake is a non-profit organization founded in 2003 to improve Lake Lillinonah for the recreational enjoyment for those who use it, to improve its water quality to the standards set forth in the Clean Water Act, and for the long-term environmental protection of this beautiful section of the Housatonic River and its watershed.

Our Objective
Friends of the lake will work closely with the Lake Lillinonah Authority, First Light Power, the CT Department of Environmental Protection, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, elected officials, members, residents and other groups to reduce the debris and pollution of Lake Lillinonah. We will work to increase public awareness, develop a closer lake community, foster stewardship of the lake, and obtain funding for a variety of projects in the pursuit of this objective.
