Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) issued a reminder on Wednesday that it has extended the public comment period for a proposed regulation to establish a slow-no-wake zone on Lake Waramaug in the upper portion of the cove that abuts Lake Waramaug State Park. The public comment period has been extended from November 22, 2013 to January 6, 2014. Lake Waramaug is located in the northwestern quarter of the state and touches three municipalities: Warren, Washington and Kent.

“We were notified that some of the residents of the surrounding communities were unaware of the proposal to establish a slow-no-wake zone on Lake Waramaug,” said DEEP Deputy Commissioner Susan Whalen. “We want people who may be affected by this regulation to weigh in so we agreed to extend the comment period so that interested persons can fully consider the measure and comment accordingly.”

The proposed regulation was drafted at the request of the Town of Warren. A public hearing was held on November 8, 2013 and numerous comments have been provided to DEEP. At the end of the comment period, DEEP will consider all comments and decide whether to advance the proposed regulation or a modified version, or to decline further action on the measure.

Copies of the proposal are available for public inspection during normal business hours and may be obtained from Timothy Delgado at the DEEP Marine Headquarters located at 333 Ferry Road, Old Lyme, Connecticut, 06371. The proposal and associated documents are also posted on the DEEP Boating Division webpage.

All interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding the proposed amendment to the DEEP-Marine Headquarters, Boating Division, P.O. Box 280, Old Lyme, CT 06371. All comments should be directed to the attention of Timothy Delgado. Comments may be submitted by post, facsimile to (860) 434-3501 or by electronic mail to Only those written comments containing the name and address of the commenter will be considered.
