Award goes to lake protectors


EAST HAMPTON — The East Hampton Conservati­on & Lake Commission started the Lake-Smart Award program for property owners living on Lake Pocotopaug or in the surroundin­g watershed. It is meant to encourage property owners to improve the quality of the lake by doing projects to prevent infiltrati­on of phosphates, nitrates, pesticides and other impurities from entering the lake, according to a press release.

Those that achieve seven requiremen­ts can receive a Lake-Smart Award sign they can display on their property. It is hoped the program will not only improve the quality of the lake, but also encourage neighbors to make improvemen­ts to their property, the news release said.

To be evaluated for the award, contact Jeremy Hall at 860-267-7300 or jhall@easthampto­, or Jeremy DeCarli at 860-267-7450 or jdecarli@easthampto­
