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.

Drawdown/Refill Status

April 18, 2022, 9:47 p.m.

Drawdown started the weekend of October 16, 2021.  The 4-foot drawdown was achieved on approximately 11 November 2021. The depth was measured from the high mean watermark on the spillway in accordance with DEP requirements. Refill began through the help of mother nature early February and the valve was closed (opened some to allow flow downstream) on February 15, 2022 to complete the refill. In late February, the decision was made to open the valve to offset the influx and reduce the lake level. This was in response to a request from the Conservation Commission to allow some residents to stabilize their waterfront and install corrosion control as they were repairing their walls. That stabilization and corrosion control were established, and the valve was shut to complete refill on March 28, 2022, while allowing some flow downstream (open ~3 turns). The final spring refill was completed on April 4, 2022.
