LCWA Land Resources

Hickory Point

In keeping with the Water Authority’s legislative mission for “controlling and conserving freshwater resources in Lake County,” and “preserving, protecting, and improving the fish and aquatic wildlife of the county,” the Citizens Advisory Committee on Conservation recommended in 1987 that LCWA acquire sites within Lake County needing protection.

Objectives of the Water Authority:

  • Conservation of our unique and irreplaceable natural resources by protecting the lands containing such biodiversity.
  • Utilization of these conservation lands for compatible public recreational activity.

Since 1989, the Water Authority has acquired over 6,300 acres for protection, either through purchase or donation. Of the 6,300 acres, approximately 71% is considered wetlands and the remaining 29% uplands support recreational opportunities.
