Lake McDonough Recreation Area Closed



    The Lake McDonough Recreation Area in Barkhamsted will be closed effective Thursday, June 13 because of the forecast for more rain.

    The heavy rainfall expected on Thursday could cause spillage from Saville Dam, causing Lake McDonough to spill over to the east branch of the Farmington River, prohibiting all recreational activities until further notice.

    This is an MDC area and they said this is necessary to ensure the safety of recreational users.
