Witches Woods Lake

Tax District Documents | Boating Ordinance

Please remember that the State of Connecticut requires that operators of power boats be certified. Obtaining a certification involves passing a training course. This law applies to power boats used on our lake. Also, a Witches Woods boat sticker is required for all hard sided boats on the lake. This included not only power boats, but sailboats, row boats, canoes, and paddle boats. The stickers can be obtained from the health, fire and safety committee chair for the fee of $5. Stickers will also be available at the Annual Meeting.  The stickers do not have to be replaced each year. The sticker is good for as long as it remains affixed on the boat. The purpose of the sticker is to identify that boat belongs on Witches Woods Lake.

Boat speed on the lake will be restricted to a maximum of 25 MPH at any time. In addition, no person shall operate a powerboat in excess of five (5) MPH between the hours of one-half hour before sunset and 9:00AM on Monday through Friday; and one-half hour before sunset and 12:00 noon on the following day in the case of Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. No person shall operate a boat having a motor or engine of more than seventy (70) horsepower.  No boats over 18 feet in length will be allowed on the the lake. Jet skis are prohibited from the lake. Any person violating these provisions shall be fined not more than $100 by Department of Environmental Protection of the State of Connecticut.
