Welcome to Bass Lake

The Bass Lake Conservancy District (“BLCD”) was created by the Starke County Circuit Court in accordance with the requirements of the Indiana Conservancy District Act in 1989. BLCD was created by the Court for the two (2) following purposes:

  1. Providing for the collection, treatment, and disposal of sewage and other liquid wastes; and
  2. Operation, maintenance and improvement of a works of improvement for water based recreational purposes.  

Consistent with the above-referenced purposes, the BLCD owns and operates the sewer system that services the residents of Bass Lake since 1997. This includes 22 miles of sewer pipelines, 16 lift stations and 1 sewerage plant. The BLCD is also involved in lake water quality control (i.e. invasive weed control) and during certain times of the year will pump water into the lake in an effort to maintain the lake level.  

Bass Lake is the fourth largest spring-fed natural lake in Indiana. According to the latest US Census Bureau, the population is 1,249. The census-designated place (CDP) Bass Lake is in California and North Bend Townships, and is part of Starke County Indiana. The CDP has a total area of 11.3 square miles, of which, 9.1 square miles is land and 2.1 square miles is water.
