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

The Illinois EPA has approved our second round of silt testing, which means that we can move ahead with our hydraulic dredge project. Scott Brown from Wendler Engineering and Joe Rush, our aquatic management consultant are currently working on a bid spec that should be completed in January. Once a contractor is secured, we will have a more definitive timeline for completion. We will continue to provide updates as this highly anticipated project progresses.


Controlled Burn

The Nachusa Grasslands' Orland Track, located north of the creek near the dam and north of the RCD property, is planning a controlled burn in February of 2023. A notice will be sent out to the community prior to the burn.

Fish Stocking

The RCD stocked the following fish recently:

Walleye: 6”— 8”/300
