SEPTEMBER, 14, 2015
Last week, the Association was caught discharging swimming pool water into our lake. This appears to be in direct violation of CT DEEP regulations.
According to our understanding of the appropriate CT DEEP regulations, we must have a permit to discharge swimming pool water. Before the water is discharged a permit must be in place and there must be appropriate record keeping of tested chlorine content of water released. If the swimming pool water is released into the lake it must have zero Chlorine content and this fact must be recorded.
Chlorine is quite harmful to our lake environment. Chlorine can impact fish, invertebrates, plants, and other life forms. With all the discussion about not using chemicals at Woodridge Lake it is unconscionable that Association Management did not think of this before discharging the swimming pool water and that they took the CT DEEP regulations so lightly.
Lets work together to make sure this does not happen again!
