Lost Lake RCD & LLUD Celebrate Former Employees
On the Sunday afternoon of February 26, 2023, the Community came together to celebrate two ladies who devoted years of service to Lost Lake. The Lake Court Center was full of hugs, handshakes, congratulations, smiles and laughter, and of course cupcakes as the Community wished the best to Becky Miller and Susan Steffens.
Becky Miller served as Office Manager for Lost Lake River Conservancy District for 21 years, and Susan Steffens served as Office Manager for Lost Lake Utility District for 16 years.
Each Board of Directors presented Becky and Susan a beautiful award noting their service to the community. We are thankful for their long-term commitment to Lost Lake, and we wish them the very best on their future endeavors.
Two Lost Lake Entities Combine Offices:
Lost Lake Utility District has relocated their office to the Lake Court Center. The LLUD office has combined with the Lost Lake RCD office. One space to do business for both entities. The new LLUD address is 406 Lake Court, Dixon, IL 61021.

Hydraulic Dredging and Silt Basin Construction
Over the years, silt and sediment has built up on the lakebed which reduces the depth of the waterways making boating more difficult, spurs algae growth and aquatic weed infestations, and leads to poor conditions for fish. Without thoughtful action now, our beloved Lost Lake will eventually become silted in. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
Lake Dredging Update
Superior Seawalls provided the winning dredge bid and is currently working with our team to develop a contract that includes the details necessary to complete the dredge.
Once the contract is complete, the work can begin. We remain optimistic that the dredge will be completed yet this year.
Homeowners along the shoreline will have the opportunity to have their shoreline area dredged as well, at the homeowner's expense. This will provide an opportunity for shoreline dredging at a discounted rate, since the Contractor will already be working in our lake. A notice will be issued once the details are available.
We are excited that this long-anticipated project is moving forward.
The RCD stocked the following fish recently:
Smallmouth Bass: 5”-8”/400
