Lake Drawdown

The Drawdown Permit was approved by the Fish & Boat Commission (PFBC) and states the valve will be opened no sooner than 10/11/2021 and will be closed no later than 4/4/2022 and will be lowered to [and we will try to regulate at] 8-12 feet below normal pool.

Water Line Flushing

This is a Public Water Notification for the entire water service area of Indian lake Borough. Indian Lake Borough will be flushing waterlines from Monday August 30, 2021 to Friday September 3, 2021.  You may experience cloudy water and low water pressure during this time frame due to the flushing process. If you have any questions or concerns, you can e-mail me at Dean@indianlakepa.us.

Thank You,

Snowmobiles and ATVs; Sharing the Road

Council enacted Ordinance 187 permitting joint use of Borough roadways for properly registered and operated and insured snowmobiles and ATVs. This Ordinance is permitted by recent changes in state laws and is viewed as important legislation for recreational and recreation-friendly communities such as ours.

The Ordinance is available by clicking the link below. There are many important provisions, restrictions, limitations and nuance in the Ordinance and, more importantly, the underlying state laws.

Golf Carts are specifically excluded from PA's ATV, Snowmobile or NEV regulations and provisions, and are thus NOT permitted under these ordinances.

Ordinance 187

Chapter 77 of the Motor Vehicle Code

Indian Lake Borough is increasing yearly water rates this year to $360 per year to pay for the new Treatment Plant and Tank.  The major contract was awarded to Hickes Associates of Alexandria, PA (Huntington County), with the electrical work to Westmoreland Electric from Tarrs, PA (Westmoreland County). Award was/is contingent on closing the PENNVEST loan in April. Construction activity should start this summer.

SwiftReach & e-News

Thanks to our service providers, SwiftReach, e-Pay and e-Newsthis site no longer requires or features registration or login or passwords, the best defense against the incessant hacking...  Login remains necessary only for administrators.

SwiftReach is the existing Emergency Notification Service (robo-caller) we use to make phone calls regarding water line breaks, road closures, weather emergencies, etc., in compliance with state and federal regulations.  

e-News uses our new MailChimp bulk-mail customer contact provider for subscribing to spam-free (and hopefully hacker immune) e-News/Newsletters and routine correspondence.  MailChimp makes sure that we comply with the latest spam regulations, and works with all major e-mail service providers to make sure our guaranteed-welcome and spam-free messages are issued through their systems without being blocked or filtered.  

If you want our messages, subscribe.  See the links at the bottom of this page.  If you do not want our messages, unsubscribe.  It's that simple.  They do the rest.

e-Pay is a full-featured on-line store which lets us automate selecting and paying for services while gathering all the info we need from our customers for boat licenses and such.

Weeds

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
