Lake Lemon Conservancy District
Backstory and Context
Following the construction of Lake Monroe, Lake Lemon was no longer the primary source of water for Bloomington. Due to the financial burden of an unused water supply, in the late 1980s, the City of Bloomington started to look for a group that would be interested in managing the reservoir. In response, lake residents Earl Eberle, Larry Ritter, and Bud Howard formed the Lemon Conservancy District (LLCD) in 1995. The LLCD is comprised of volunteer directors of Lake Lemon landowners and is responsible for the stewardship of the lake. In the Spring of 2010, the LLCD purchased the required equipment to manage a dredging and shoreline stabilization effort called the Lake Lemon Restoration Project.
