Lake Waramaug Task Force
The Lake Waramaug Task Force is a non-profit scientific and educational organization dedicated to restoring and maintaining the ecology and water quality of Lake Waramaug and its watershed. Its mission is: to work with leading lake scientists to research and design the best possible water quality management solutions; to operate an extensive in-lake restoration system which restores the natural balance of the Lake’s ecosystem by removing or isolating harmful nutrients; to improve the Lake habitat for cold water fish and beneficial zooplankton; to control the spread of invasive aquatic species.
The Give Local proceeds will allow for the ongoing operations of our mission. Our organization is funded exclusively through generous donations from concerned residents of the communities bordering the lake, within its watershed area and throughout the region. Your funding will support our ongoing projects such as operation and maintenance of our extensive lake aeration system; regular monitoring of Lake water quality, invasive weed removal as well as a major erosion control project along Sucker Brook, the Lake’s main tributary. Lake Waramaug is faced with challenges that must be continually monitored and contained (algae, phosphorus). New threats (such as invasive aquatic plants and pollution from unchecked development) must be anticipated, researched and combated on scientific, educational and political fronts.
