New Fairfield officials have dropped plans to add herbicides to a section of Candlewood Lake. The Newstimes reports that more than 200 people packed a town hall meeting last night and most voted for an ordinance that would require a townwide vote whenever officials want to use chemicals on the lake. A group called Candlewood Voices pushed for the ordinance. New Fairfield officials will no longer apply for a permit from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to add Diquat to about 10 acres of the Shelter Harbor Cove area of Candlewood. Residents of that part of the lake reportedly approved of adding the herbicides.
