The Cheshire Police Department is reminding locals that restrictions will be in place as Hoosac Lake is chemically treated to control the growth of nuisance aquatic vegetation.

According to the Facebook post by both the Cheshire Police Department and the Town of Cheshire’s page, the chemical treatment scheduled for tomorrow will prohibit boating, fishing, and swimming activities at the lake until Friday the 9th.  Also mentioned is no drinking, cooking and watering of livestock.

In addition to on-lake restricted activities tomorrow CPD is reminding lake-goers of new parking restrictions now in place at the lake.  This summer if you are kayaking or canoeing you should use the launch directly across from Bass Water Restaurant and park at that end of the lot.  Those with a boat and trailer should utilize the area south of the boat ramp with the long painted white lines to park your vehicle and trailer after using the boat ramp.   The post from the CPD is below…

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
