Mohegan Lake Legal Defense Fund

History of this site

This site was originally set up to fight 3 of 5 zoning variances proposed by the FBC development at Sagamore Trail and Mohegan Ave that eliminates two single family homes while nearly quadrupling the parking and occupancy loads of the old Lakeland Jewish Center. That effort failed and the application is currently before the Planning Board.

While Save Mohegan Lake will continue to update you on that issue, we are moving on to all issues affecting the lake, such as Mohegan Lake Improvement District (MLID) meetings, agenda and budget. This site is not an official mouthpiece for MLID, but some updates will be provided on this site; the official site is located here.

We do it all here, so long as it's Mohegan Lake related. Feel free to submit comments, content, garage sale notices, police blotters, PSA's, essays on the virtues of our 105 acre ice rink, rants, raves, etc... We love it all.

The Lake Is Getting A "Treatment" Tomorrow

Of Copper Sulfate, to be exact.

Stay out of the water for at least 24 hours; assume it's done by the afternoon.  If signs are still up, don't swim. Please enjoy its algae killing effects thereafter!

A message from MLID president Ken Belfer:

The lake is being treated Tuesday July 7th.  Signs are posted with the 24 hour swimming restrictions.  Thanks in advance with everyone's cooperation.  It was encouraging to see how quickly the water quality improved after the first application, and discouraging to see how quickly the algae was growing back after a week and a half.  Although our original intention was treatment every three weeks through the summer, I think we will stick with two week intervals for now.    Ken
