Lake Waramaug Association calls for ban on seaplane landings

A proposal to ban seaplanes from Lake Waramaug has been proposed.  The First Selectman in the Town of Washington has proposed an ordinance prohibiting seaplanes from landing on Lake Waramaug, except in emergencies. 

 

The legislation would have to be approved by the towns of Washington, Kent and Warren because the lake spans all three towns.  The Lake Waramaug Authority, which is made up of representatives from the towns, has determined that the landing of an aircraft on the lake would endanger public safety, create a public disturbance and risk contaminating the water with invasive organisms. 

 

Kent Selectman Jeffrey Parkin, who is a seaplane pilot, said during a recent Kent Board of Selectmen meeting that the ordinance is trying to regulate a problem which isn't a problem. 

 

No immediate action was taken on the measure.
