Plan to Repair Lake Beseck Dam Discussed
Officials from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Middlefield’s Lake Beseck Association, First Selectman Jon Brayshaw and Selectman Ed Bailey attended a recent public information meeting regarding a new dam project for the lake.

The proposed project will repair the existing dam that was built in 1848. Over the years, there have been multiple repairs to address seepage problems, but each time the work lasted only five to ten years.

The project would require a 12 ½ foot drawdown of the water level and some residents saw an opportunity to dredge the lake and address issues such as algae, weeds, and sediment. The lake association is also wondering if it can take advantage of the dam repair to help give tax payers the “waterfront property” that they pay taxes on.

A feasibility study is the first step toward managing the lake and a $50,000 EPA grant is being sought to study the lake and where the nutrients are coming from.
