Todd Girard, Conservation Agent: The Glen Echo pool elevation seasonal draw down has begun. The usual downstream inspection was performed and the gate has been opened enough to begin the “wetting” process for the stream, this allows the organisms within the stream to make the adjustments to the slowly increased flow rates. Tomorrow the gate will be tested for full open and full closure operating conditions and set to the normal draw down rate. Survey reference points will be established at the draw down elevation to ensure the pool elevation does not go below four feet and is maintained at that level until Jan 15th the beginning of the 2018 refill process. Weekly inspection on Monday’s and Thursday’s will be performed with pool elevation an noted and recommendations for the continued activities.


Glen Echo Lake is a freshwater lake located in Charlton, Massachusetts. It is 116 acres and primarily used by its residents for fishing, swimming and water skiing.

The Glen Echo Improvement Association, made up entirely of volunteers, was founded to promote good fellowship among its members; to promote the civic welfare of Glen Echo Lake Community; to establish and maintain improvements in and about the community; to improve the ecology of Glen Echo Lake; to preserve the rights and privileges of residents; and to do things necessary and incidental to these purposes permissible under Chapter 180 of the General Laws. It is also our goal to educate lake residents, and provide a social forum for members to express concerns and to share information. Monthly meetings, held during the summer, determine our direction by providing an opportunity for everyone living on Glen Echo to discuss any topic regarding the lake. All voices are heard. You need not be a member of the association to address the group. You do need to be a member of the Association to vote. Meeting dates, times, and location are announced on GEIA bulletin boards around the lake and by our newsletter. Please come to a meeting and learn more about us.
