Step 1

Lake County’s Adopt-a-Lake Program Coordinator will review and discuss potential locations that the group/individual proposes to adopt. Once a location is agreed upon, an Application and Permit needs to be completed by the Adopt-a-Lake Program Coordinator and the group representatives.


Step 2

The group/individual selects which component(s) of the program to participate in.


Step 3

When the Permit is signed by all parties, Lake County will order a recognition sign identifying the group/individual’s name and arrange for installation in an appropriate area. NOTE: Lake County reserves the right to determine if it is appropriate to locate a sign in the adopted area. Boat ramps, community areas, marinas, etc. are ideal locations for the placement of a sign. Lake County wishes to preserve the natural beauty of our shorelines.

If volunteer monitoring is one of the options chosen, a training session will be required for each volunteer prior to beginning monitoring.


Step 4

Volunteer groups are responsible for disposing of trash picked up. If there is a large item, arrangement may be made with Lake County for pick-up. Otherwise, trash cans located on site are to be used. The volunteer group is responsible for emptying the trash can.


Step 5

When a group terminates the Permit or defaults on its obligation for six months, the Coordinator will remove the recognition signs. That lake will then be available to other adopting groups.
