Some local lawmakers recently took a tour of Candlewood Lake to learn more about what the legislature could do to protect local lakes and natural resources.
Brookfield Representative Steve Harding, a ranking member of the Environment Committee, and Danbury Representative David Arconti were guided by Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Sergeant Gregory Ulkus.
EnCon police are responsible for patrolling the lake.
They talked about the types of issues faced while on patrol. Most of the work is centered on public safety and ensuring visitors are aware of the laws and regulations while on the water. Harding says it was very informative to hear about concerns regarding the lake and how the state can help on those matters.
