About Us

Our MISSION
It is the mission of the CRYSTAL LAKE ASSOCIATION OF ELLINGTON, CT, to inform every one of the issues and news pertaining to Crystal Lake and the surrounding watershed.

PURPOSE
The purpose of the CRYSTAL LAKE ASSOCIATION is to preserve, protect and improve Crystal Lake and its surrounding area and promote the general welfare of the property, its owners and residents.

Why we need your Help!

Every year the CLA uses its funds to benefit and improve the well being of the lake. This year we are especially challenged as experts have found that the dam under Conklin Rd “Is In The State Of Gradual Failure.” If this dam was to fail, the water level of the lake could drop 8 feet.


-Current lake levels in RED
-Estimated water levels in BLUE if the dam were to fail


If the Dam Fails:
· Water would be inaccessible from the State Boat Launch
· Significant die off of aquatic plants and fish
· State of CT would likely discontinue fish stocking program
· Housing properties values on the lake would decline
· Town Beach would be unusable due to 200+ feet of mud

THE CLA's PLAN-
During the last meeting the CLA agreed to contribute $5000 to the dam repair project. Unfortunately more is needed to complete the project. Repair of the dam is critical to sustain the current water levels of Crystal Lake.

Repair details -
-All Repairs Will Be Maintenance Items Only
-No Change In Spillway Flow Characteristic
-No Change In Lake Level
-No Change In Hydraulic Of Existing Dam
-Dam Functionality Will Remain Unchanged

Is anyone at the CLA responsible for reading and responding to emails? On August 17,2016 I donated $250.00 dollars to the CLA to be used for the dam repair and have not received a receipt or acknowledgement that the donation was received? I have sent emails and have not received any responses? A receipt for my files would be appreciated.
