Connecticut Federation of Lakes
The CFL was founded in 1995 by a small group of people from through out Connecticut concerned or working on lake-related issues. Since that time, the organization grew and held its first of many annual conferences in 1996 at Connecticut College. Subsequent conferences occurred at Western Connecticut State University, Wesleyan University, and at the facilities of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. The CFL also hosted conferences of the New England Chapter of the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) in 1999 and 2006 and was part of the Hosting Committee for the International NALMS Symposium in 2004 and 2009, held at Foxwoods and the Connecticut Convension Center, respectively.

In the past, Connecticut lakes needed a voice to represent them at the local and state government levels, to educate the public, and to help create an environmental ethic for lakes so these important inland waterbodies can become and/or remain the healthy, desirable natural resources our families and friends deserve.

Although lakes have not been neglected, they have suffered over the years just as have the Long Island Sound and our rivers. High-density populations around lakes, septic problems, stormwater runoff, erosion, nutrient loading, exotic species, and other causes of environmental degradation have damaged many of our lakes and ponds.

Our lakes are very fragile; but with public education, remedial programs and political action they can be protected. The CFL was formed by those who wanted to help.

The CFL is a partner, a resource, a sounding board, a clearing house and even an advocate in local, state, and national matters as they pertain to CT lakes. The CFL wants to help you in your efforts to protect your lake, pond and/or watershed to be healthier now and in the future.

The CFL is the Voice for Connecticut Lakes.

The mission of the CFL is to work with you and for you for healthier lakes and watersheds on local, state and even federal levels.

Biofoulers Global Management Costs the US $277 Million Annually - Biofoulers are organisms that accumulate underwater on hard surfaces, to the detriment of property and economically important activities, such as shipping, power generation, and water treatment. While plants and algae can act as freshwater biofoulers, the study focused on the impact of animals. Eleven groups known to cause problems were investigated, among them mussels, clams, snails, crustaceans, sponges, and insects.
