Latest News & Information

The latest on hydrilla

Hydrilla is an invasive weed with a potentially devastating impact. It has a toehold in the Twin Lakes, primarily around the marina and north of the state boat launch. The TLA is working with the state and the town to respond. Read our February 2024 newsletter for details on the steps we are taking. This story (subscribers only) in the Lakeville Journal brings the issues to a wider audience. Read more on our hydrilla threat page.

Keep the Lakes Fun for All

  • Treat all boaters, lake residents, and wildlife with respect and consideration.
  • Sound carries over water. Turn down the music, especially in the early and late evening and if your boat has externally facing speakers.
  • When anchoring with other boats, stay 500 feet offshore and consider tying up where there are few homes nearby.
  • Avoid large wakes, and casting near docks, boats, and swimmers.
  • Follow safe-boating rules and keep the lakes trash free.

Welcome to Twin Lakes

The Twin Lakes Association is a volunteer-based nonprofit that manages the lakes in a scientifically sound manner balancing the interests of all concerned. We sponsor scientific studies, publish long-term management plans, engage with other lake associations across the state to advocate best practices, and more. The lakes are in the northwest corner and serve as an important freshwater resource for Connecticut. We are an outdoors oriented community with interests from hiking, cycling and fishing to skiing, paddling and kayaking.
