Lost Lake RCD Calendar

Current News​

Beaches open as of 6/16/2021: Our latest water samples came back low for E.coli from both beaches so the beaches are open for swimming per the IDPH. 


Budget and Appropriation: The board approved the FY2021-2022 Budget on June 17, 2021. Click here for a copy of the budget.


Algae bloom: As some of you have noticed, our lake has its annual algae bloom. I have talked to Joe Rush, RCD Lake Biologist and sent him several pictures from around our lake. His comment was; it looks like a green algae bloom. Our lake normally tends to flush well after we get some rains and the wind we are getting will help. The RCD will continue to monitor it.


Lake Court Center Availability: As of June 11th, Illinois is in phase 5; as such, the LCC is available without restrictions.

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 Lost Swamp.

Monthly RCD meetings are
held on the 2nd Thursday
of each month at 6 PM at
404 Lake Court, Dixon, IL unless otherwise posted.
Office Hours:
Monday — Thursday,
10AM — 2PM

The RCD is always interested in sharing interesting and newsworthy stories, news items and photos from within the RCD's district boundaries.
