Thank you to our volunteers!

September 24, 2020

A message from Tom Burt, LAE President: 

I would like to get a big thank you out to the volunteers for liming this year. The volunteers this year were Ralph Marinaccio, Normand Robert, Jack Rankin, Gary Mahaffy, and myself. It is a real good feeling to ask for volunteers and have them turn out to be such good workers. We rented the chipper for the week (Mon-Fri) anticipating that is how long we would need it. It was returned Wed. These guys got every road in here done. We saved the expense of a contractor coming in here at a price between $5000-$6000 for three roads. It is great when a community comes together. Good bunch of guys. Under the very good guide of Mike Carter our road contractor.

Lake Level News

September 12, 2020

Both Millen and Sand Ponds are doing deep drawdowns, which will raise our lake level. Millen will drop their pond 5 feet, starting September 28. On October 3rd they will fully open their gate. Sand will remove two boards on September 28 and over the following weeks remove more boards. Their dam operators will be in communication with our Dam Commissioners, to monitor the level of Ashuelot. They can slow down the flow, if Ashuelot begins to rise too fast/high. -PC

September Notices

LAE President Tom Burt:

"There are to be no fires on LAE beach. All fires in Washington are by permit and we do not have a standing permit so no fires without one."

"Stowell will be closed from Jefferson to Grant today(9/1/2020) and until the completion of the 18" culver replacement. Use Jefferson and Grant to detour this area."

Lake Level Low

September 01, 2020

6/14/2020: Our dam contractor returned today to re-examine the leakage. The plug worked particularly, but there is still something very wrong. It appears that boards in the lower gate may be rotted or out of line and allowing water through. He has suggested, starting with dropping down sand bags to stop the leak. There are other options, if that doesn’t work -PC

6/11/2020: Our Dam Commissioner has spoken with JNH Department of Environmental Services and NH DAM LLC. ie. Gate Leakage. The outflow is less than the inflow. They added a pulp plug to help stem the flow. The leak is 18-24 inches in length and less tha 1/2 inch wide. Hydraulic pressure makes the flow appear worse than it is. The second spillway is where the majority of the water is flowing out of the lake. There is no way to stop that. We are in an abnormally dry period. We need rain! Maybe we will get a bit of help with today’s storms -PC

Lake Testing Update

May 29, 2020

Lake Ashuelot will continue its water testing program with New Hampshire DES in 2020. Not even a global pandemic can pause our dedication to limnology data collection. We are waiting for specific pick up and drop off protocols from the Colby Sawyer College lab. Once the protocols are released, we will schedule sampling dates. Due to social distancing, we will not require volunteers for sampling. Volunteers for pick up and or drop off of samples in New London are greatly appreciated. Please use the contact feature of this website to volunteer. Thank you!

Reminder: Rules and Regulations Regarding Dogs

September 30, 2019



We are receiving numerous complaints regarding dogs running loose, dog poop in the road, and dogs running in the beach area.


LAE Rules and Regulations clearly state that No pets are allowed in the Beach area (from the roadside to the water), and that they must be under control at all times.  New Hampshire also has a leash law.


The practice of walking a dog without being on a leash can become a dangerous issue when the dogs become aggressive while encountering another dog or people.


We are simply asking that all Members be responsible pet owners and abide by the LAE Rules and Regulations, pick up after your pets and help us keep our community safe and clean for everyone to enjoy.


Thank you for your cooperation.

New Main Entrance

September 02, 2019

Honorable mention should be made to Paul Carriere and Phil Mills (& son) for their "artistic abilities" in creating our new Main Entrance. Also Tom Burt, Dave & Lori Dickman, John Rankin, Gary Mahaffy, Linda Brereton, Steve Lowe and Normand & Denise Robert for donating time, materials and their hard work in the framing of the sign and its landscaping. Their efforts have saved the Association a great deal with BEAUTIFUL RESULTS!


August 17, 2019

After final legal review of our bylaws 3.4 "quorum", including the amendment from 2014, and section 3.6 "voting", our attorney's response stated a 75% vote is required to pass the motion. The vote failed and did not pass therefore the truck will not be purchased.

Marina Notice

June 08, 2019

Marina Notice


All boats (canoes, kayaks, paddle boats) are to be stored on the racks, and not on the ground.

Rack space is available on a first come, first served basis.

If there is no rack space available please take your boat home with you when you are finished boating.

The reason for this is it is extremely difficult for the lawn maintenance contractor to mow the grass when boats are on the ground. The boats on the ground block access for emergency vehicles to get to the helicopter landing area at the end of the peninsula. On June 4th, there were 17 boats on the ground or squeezed in between the racks.

Boats that are left on the ground are subject to being moved to another location.
