When driving on RT 9 north going into New Britain you can see on the right side 2 small lakes. One with a crane's boom sticking out (which now has an American flag attached to it) When driving on RT 9 south into Berlin/Cromwell you can see one small lake. (I went fishing there before as a kid)

Anyone know the story how these lakes were created? I doubt they occurred naturally.

P.S. I heard a story regarding the lake with the crane's boom. The story says these were old clay mining pits and they struck an under ground spring. It filled up so quickly they couldn't remove the equipment in time. Supposedly, more equipment is buried underwater here.

This section of RT 9 was previously called RT 72.
