                 Open position on the WWTD board.

              Keith Pezzetti, our Building and Zoning Committee chair person for the past years, will be leaving the WWTD board to take a position on the
Woodstock Fair Board of Directors.
The duties of this position which we are looking to fill include, monitoring and reporting building permits issued for tax district property owners, as well as verifying that the requested work is in compliance with our covenants and restrictions. The tax district board also meets once a month for about two hours and hosts a yearly district wide meeting the third Friday in May.

This is an excellent opportunity to serve the interests of the tax district and help insure the quality of life we all enjoy. Interested persons may reply to this email for consideration.

                                                         IMPORTANT NOTICE
Due to the State of Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection mandate that we install new toe drains at the backside of the earthen dam, construction is scheduled to begin either September 18th or 25th and will take about two weeks to complete.
This will require a lake drawdown of two to three feet to erase hydrostatic pressure. It is recommended that boat owners may want to remove their boats from the lake by September 15th. If we do not receive any significant rain and Bungay Lake does not begin their drawdown until mid-October, there is a chance that Witches Woods Lake may not refill enough to provide normal water levels to remove boats later in the fall.
Why not wait a few weeks to do the construction?
Once the construction is complete, the area will need to be reseeded so grass will grow. To germinate, the seed needs temperatures of 65 degrees or higher. Grass is essential to maintaining the integrity of the toe drains and without the grass we would be left with mud and potential erosion.
Thank you for your understanding. We will continue to keep you informed on the progress of this project.

Jetski) on Connecticut waters that is towing a skier, tube, or has anyone riding the wake of the vessel,  the operator must: be age 16 or older and have a valid boating certificate from either Connecticut, a state that has a reciprocal agreement with Connecticut, or a U.S. Coast Guard operator’s license and possess a Connecticut Safe Waterskiing Endorsement.
Connecticut currently has reciprocity with New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  We hope to enter into reciprocal agreements with other states before Spring, 2016.
Persons who have obtained any of the certificates listed in #2 (above) prior to October 1, 2015 are exempt from needing theSafe Waterskiing Endorsement.

Beginning October 1, all classroom boating courses approved by the Commissioner resulting in a Connecticut boating safety certificate will now include the information and testing needed to qualify for the Safe Waterskiing Endorsement.  Upon successful completion of the classroom course, the Safe Waterskiing Endorsement will print automatically when the boating certificate is purchased through the Online Sportsmen Licensing webpage.
