Drone Policy

posted Jul 11, 2019, 5:12 PM by Washington Lake Association   [ updated Jul 11, 2019, 5:13 PM ]

From Officers and Board of Directors:


Out of safety and privacy concerns for members and guests the WLA prohibits the operation or use of drones on any WLA properties: beach, volleyball court, parking area, boat ramp and the dam. 

This prohibition extends to any drones launched or operated from WLA property, as well as drones launched from private property outside of the WLA properties but flying within WLA property boundaries.

The WLA will give permission to utility companies, the Town of Washington, and fire and safety organizations that need to operate a drone on or over WLA properties to investigate issues, plan work efforts, or document conditions.



In addition Island Pond has an FAA seaplane base, 
07NH / Diving Rock, which effectively prohibits operating a drone on or near the lake without permission. Please follow all FAA rules and regulations regarding recreational drone usage.

                show how to access and use the application. My note: this appears to be a new effort by the state and as such has a few 
                issues but do try it and comment back to them to help them improve this site.  Click here to access this application.
