Lake Management Committee

The Lake Management Committee (LMC) consists of nine regular members and two associate members who are appointed annually by the Board of Selectmen. The LMC’s basic charter is the promotion of lake safety and the management of the two Public Access Board owned, Town of Southwick managed, boat ramps and new public parking area located on the Congamond Lake, Middle Pond.
  • Launch fee is $8.00 per boat.
In addition to its related projects,  LMC works hand-in-hand with the Citizen Restoring Congamond (CRC) on CRC-sponsored lake projects. LMC meetings are open to the public, and anyone with interest in lake safety, water quality, ramp operations, or any of the LMC’s various lake and ramp betterment projects is encouraged to attend. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed to assist in implementing these projects.
Many changes have been made over the years to provide a higher level of enjoyment at the boat launch on Point Grove Road (North Ramp) and Berkshitre Avenue (South Ramp). Some of the most prominent features are the handicapped-accessible fishing pier and handicap-accessible boarding docks at both ramps that were funded by the Public Access Board. Grants obtained by the LMC allowed for the addition of the Visitor Center, storage shed, public parking area, information kiosks, gazebo, walkways and facility lighting.
