New WACF Acquisition

The WACF recently completed a transaction for a key piece of shoreline property on Gordy Lake. This lake is part of the 10-lakes/Turkey Creek chain that supplies an estimated 43% of the water to Lake Wawasee. Controlling and protecting these shorelines insures that the water flowing into Lake Wawasee remains clear and clean.


New Drainage for Thorpe Basin

This Fall the WACF decided to move forward on a much needed new drainage system for the WACF Thorpe Sediment Basin project near the middle school. The basin filters sediment that would otherwise drain into Lake Wawasee. The new system will allow much better drainage when a significant rain event occurs. View complete info on the new design…
