For 2016, in-home monitoring for Lead and Copper has been enhanced and clarified.  See the links below for general information:  

Additional instructions regarding the sampling will be provided in a month or so for those selected for our 2016-2018 plan period sampling.

There are no lead pipes within the Borough's water distribution system, and no significant lead or copper has been detected in any previous testing; generally zero lead is present and copper is very low.

Shoshone Park

Welcome to Shoshone Park. After a year of planning and execution and the help of many volunteers our new park is open. Located on the peninsula behind the stumps you will find an area cleared for fishing as well as a place to stick your feet in the water. Located off of North Shore Trail you will find parking at the gate. It was decided to proceed with the park in phases, each phase dependent on the previous one.The first phase was the clearing and contouring of the land as well as planting seed. A picnic table and grill will be installed with more added as they are needed. Please stop by and take a walk down to the new park. We will plan a dedication of the park next spring. Once again Indian Lake has shown how the residents when asked will turn out and give of their time and talent for a good cause. Most of the construction if not all of it was done with donated equipment and the time of our residents. Thank you to everyone that helped to make our new park possible.

Valve Locator Posts

As a result of our efforts trying to narrow-down water leaks this year, and the difficulties we had locating them, we have installed a number of new isolation valves.  Also in the process we found and have replaced a number of defective curb-side shut-offs for residences.

It is necessary that these valves, and all curb-side shutoffs, be clearly visible or marked so they can be easily located in emergencies, and can be readily avoided by snow-plows, delivery trucks and guests who may need to park along the roadways/berms. 

The Borough has purchased metal posts/stakes intended for this purpose.  This was done a number of years ago and many have been removed or knocked over.  [Some were 'reportedly' removed by residents who considered them eyesores, but I can't see anyone doing that on purpose...]

Please make a note of where your curb-box is located and check regularly that the locator remains upright, visible and effective.  If it gets knocked over or removed, please report it to the Borough Office.

Thank you for your cooperation.

At our Town Meetings, Bill Kirkpatrick talks about our weeds.  Not all weeds are bad.  The weeds we deal with show we have a healthy, balanced Lake.  The 3 major weed types are covered in the links below:

Remember that different Lakes and bodies of water have vastly different environments.  Moving your boat/trailer between locations can be our biggest vulnerability to Indian Lake.  The following steps can greatly reduce the risk...
  • Dry your boat/trailer at least 7-10 days
  • Use a Chlorine/Bleach solution to rinse
  • Pressure Wash before launching in Indian Lake
  • Run Engine with boot/fresh water intake
