FirstLight starts drawdown on Lake Zoar, Lillinonah up next

FirstLight Power has started the annual winter drawdown on Lake Zoar and soon will begin the process for Lake Lillinonah. Beginning on the 26th, FirstLight will conduct a drawdown at the Shepaug Dam to conduct its maintenance and inspection activities. The normal summer operating range of the station is from 200 to 195-and-a-half feet and the drawdown will target an elevation of 191. The drawdown will lower lake levels to their minimum and return to normal operating elevations on November 7th. All homeowners are encouraged to remove structures, boatlifts, and docks from Lake Lillinonah to prevent ice or flood damage from occurring during the winter months. All work planned to occur along the shoreline requires prior permitting from FirstLight.
