BROOKFIELD, Conn. -- Residents who are lucky enough to live around Candlewood Lake are being asked to remember to keep their fall leaves out of the lake.

According to the Candlewood Lake Authority, leaves become a source of nutrients that can increase algae and weeds to grow. Adding leaves to the lake will also accelerate the natural "filling in" process and deplete the lake of necessary oxygen as the leaves decompose.

Residents with lawn services are asked to remind their service not to rake or blow leaves into the lake.
