The no-wake zone on Candlewood Lake has been extended at Squantz Cove in New Fairfield by an additional 1,000 feet. A Town Meeting was held Thursday night to consider a petition to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection that within the area of Squantz Cove, from the causeway south 2,500 feet, would be a slow no wake area.
The zone will be noted with one marker near the state boat launch, visible to all watercraft leaving the launch. There will also be a marker placed at the end of the no-wake zone visible to watercraft entering Squantz Cove.
DEEP still needs to study the proposal and approve it.
