Red Cattey in Litchfield let everyone know about a ban in effect at Wononskopomuc (Lakeville) Lake. The town operated ramp is now closed to motor boats. Rental boats and motors for trolling remain available, but privately owned motor boats can no longer launch at the ramp. Signs alerting boaters to the ban will be posted at the lake. The closure is intended to help control the spread of hydrilla. Also, launching of motor boats at nearby Long Pond (Wononpakook Lake) is also banned.
