Draw Down Planned for This Year

2020 is a leap year and that means a Rogers Lake draw down!  Historically the lake is purposely drawn down 14” every four years to enable lake side property owners the opportunity to work on their “sea walls” and docks. The draw down will begin this year on September 15th and should be fully drawn down by September 23rd.  The 14” drawn down will be maintained until October 22nd, at which time the lake will be allowed to fill back up.  The final decision on whether to draw down the lake or not will be made at the RLA meeting scheduled for August 12th.


Connecticut State law 12-155 prohibits the use of a fertilizer containing phosphorous less than 20 feet from any body of water. A $500 fine is imposed on violators. If you have questions on the phosphorus legislation or soil testing, call the UConn Home & Garden Education Center at 877-486-6271.
