"The goal of the Division of Fish & Wildlife's Lake and River Enhancement (LARE) Program is to protect and enhance aquatic habitat for fish and wildlife, and to insure the continued viability of Indiana's publicly accessible lakes and streams for multiple uses, including recreational opportunities. This is accomplished through measures that reduce non-point sediment and nutrient pollution of surface waters to a level that meets or surpasses state water quality standards." -LARE Website
The Lake Manitou Association strives to acheive these same goals. There are many facets to a healthy lake environment, all of which must be considered and tended. Lake Manitou is blessed to be an all-sport lake where nature loving, fishing and recreational activities are equally enjoyed. Our goal is to continue the beautification of our precious asset for homeowners and lake-enthusiasts alike. The following are current, equally important programs of your Lake Manitou Association.

Channel Dredging to Begin
You may have noticed mobilization of a barge and giant excavator onto Ford's Court this past week. Dredging of the inlet to the 3rd channel is set to begin next week. The spoils and sediment material will be removed from the lake and put on the barge then transported to the empty lot owned by Ed Lanuti at 2101 Ford’s Court where a second excavator will offload the material from the barge into a sealed truck to be hauled offsite. This process will continue until 1889 cubic yards of material has been removed. This will leave the nearly impassable channel 3.5’ deep by 35’ wide and 300’ long! Please be patient and avoid this area while contractors are working, if possible. Thank you LMA for continuing to improve our wonderful lake.Read More Read ALL
