Candlewood Lake Island to Remain Closed

As we approach what is considered by many to be the first weekend of the summer season, now comes word that Blueberry Island on Candlewood Lake will remain closed indefinitely due to unsanitary conditions…. the same reason that led to its closure last year. By order of the New Fairfield Health Department, the popular island was closed last September after many complaints about human waste and litter that had been left behind there. Now, the owner of the lake and 11 of its islands… energy company Firstlight… says it plans to work with the lake towns, Candlewood Lake Authority, and state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to come up with a workable plan to address the problem, which some say is mainly due to a lack of restrooms and trash receptacles.
