The Pattagansett Lake Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Our purpose is to foster, promote, and make management recommendations for:

  1.  Watershed management techniques to improve the eutrophic condition of the lake, maintain desired water quality, and control the overgrowth of aquatic vegetation.
  2. Proper recreational uses of the lake.
  3. Maintaining desired lake ecology and wildlife habitats.

All persons interested in promoting the mission and purposes of the Association are eligible for membership, regardless of their residence.

Upon paying the $25 dues one becomes a voting member and is entitled to one vote at general membership meetings.  This includes voting to approve or appoint the four officers and other members of the Governing Board and on any issues brought up for a vote by the general membership.

The purpose of our treasury is to pay for all expenses approved by the Governing Board for the furtherance of the Associationā€™s purposes that are noted above.  Such expenses may include routine administrative expenses incurred by any organization, dues or fees payable to larger allied organizations (example: Connecticut Federation of Lakes), or towards projects approved by the Association that benefit all lake users (examples: hydroraking or herbicide use to control noxious aquatic vegetation).
