NATURAL RESOURCES COMMISSION

Information Bulletin #61 (Third Amendment)
April 1, 2014

SUBJECT: Listing of Public Freshwater Lakes


1. Purpose
Public freshwater lakes are governed by IC 14-26-2 (sometimes referred to as the "Lakes Preservation Act") and rules adopted by the Natural Resources Commission (the "Commission") at 312 IAC 11-1 through 312 IAC 11-5 to assist with its implementation of the Lakes Preservation Act. In 2008, the Indiana General Assembly enacted legislation to authorize the Commission to adopt and maintain, as a nonrule policy document, a listing of public freshwater lakes relying on recommendations of the Department of Natural Resources (the "DNR") and the Advisory Council (P.L.6-2008, SECTION 11, codified at IC 14-26-2-24). The legislation provides that the listing shall include the name of the lake, the county, and specific location within the county where the lake is located. (See IC 14-26-2-24(a)(1) and IC 14-26-2-24(a)(2)). "A person may obtain administrative review from the commission for the listing or nonlisting of a lake as a public freshwater lake through a licensure action, status determination, or enforcement action under IC 4-21.5" (IC 14-26-2-24(b)). The Commission adopted rules at 312 IAC 3-1 to assist with its implementation of IC 4-21.5. The purpose of this document is to provide the listing of public freshwater lakes that was anticipated by IC 14-26-2-24.

2. Application and Amendment
Before the adoption of this document, the DNR did not have an official listing of public freshwater lakes. The listing provides the public and DNR professionals with guidance concerning which lakes the DNR administers under the Lakes Preservation Act and 312 IAC 11-1 through 312 IAC 11-5. The Commission shall amend the listing where adjudications are made pursuant to IC 14-26-2-24(b) and may amend the listing relying upon subsequent recommendations from the DNR and the Advisory Council.
The inclusion of a lake on this list does not convey access to a public freshwater lake across private property without permission.
Since amendments to this list are anticipated, the DNR will update the Commission and propose any amendments to this document no later than January 1, 2015.

3. Definitions
The following definitions apply to this document:

(3) A record of regulation of previous construction activities on the lake by the (DNR) or the department of conservation (before its repeal)".
As provided in IC 14-26-2-14.5(b), acquiescence "does not exist if a lake has been adjudicated after March 12, 1947, to be a private lake and the (DNR), or the department of conservation (before its repeal), was a party to the adjudication".

(f) "Public freshwater lake", as provided in 312 IAC 11-2-17, "means a lake that has been used by the public with the acquiescence of a riparian owner. The term does not include any of the following:

(i) "Watercourse" means a surface or subterranean waterbody at least a part of which is characterized by a current or flow. A waterbody does not include diffused surface water.

4. Development of Listing
The DNR's Division of Water, Division of Law Enforcement, and Division of Fish and Wildlife worked together to develop this listing. Information was included from the Division of Water's database for permits that have been issued, as well as from field inspections by conservation officers and fisheries biologists, to determine if a lake meets the requirements for a public freshwater lake. The DNR limited the geographic scope of its review to the portion of Indiana north of State Road 26. The listing was subsequently reviewed and approved by the Advisory Council for recommendation to the Commission. The Commission approved the listing at a regular meeting conducted on November 17, 2009 (20101006-IR-312100620NRA); and subsequently, approved additional amendments on May 17, 2011 (20110601-IR-312110313NRA).
