About KLWA

About Us

KLWA is a not-for-profit membership association of residents in the Kirk Lake watershed. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, not-for-profit corporation. KLWA serves as a scientific and educational institution to improve the watershed's health for everyone's enjoyment, and the benefit of the environment. Kirk Lake Watershed Association is an independent, member-supported organization founded to maintain and improve the health of Kirk Lake and its watershed.

Our Mission

KLWA's mission is to enhance the quality of the natural environment in the Kirk Lake watershed. We support the diverse uses of the lake and its environs, including boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, birding, and more. KLWA addresses key issues affecting water quality, land and lake use. In addition, KLWA strives to maintain water quality as a control lake within the NYC Croton Reservoir System. We seek to educate area residents about the ecology of the watershed, in order to preserve and protect it.

Kirk Lake Associations

There are four (4) neighborhood associations surrounding Kirk Lake. KLWA is not affiliated with any neighborhood association. Geography, membership size, and lake utility define the different lake groups. Historically, there has been little communication between the lake associations. 2019 was a banner year when all four of the associations came to the KLWA Annual Meeting and decided to work together to educate their membership on lake safety and environmental health. Zebra mussels – checking boats, weed pulls – what are the dangerous weeds, lawn fertilizers, septic and lawn care were all topics discussed.
