Diamond Lake Book Available - Free
Do you live in the Diamond Lake watershed, or lakeshed?

If you live in the 12,000 year old lakeshed of historic Diamond Lake, there is a new book about the history and ways you can help prevent pollution and other negative impacts on the lake. The book, called "Our gem: a History and Stewardship Guide for Diamond Lake," was produced with a grant from the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission in 2017 and 2018. The book and grant were a collaborative effort between the Diamond Lake Preservation Alliance, the Mundelein Park and Recreation District, the Lake County Health Department-Ecological Services, the Village of Mundelein, Fremont Township Highway Department and area lake communities.

Residents of the watershed may also pick up a printed version of the book, while they last, from the Fremont Township office at 22385 W. Route 60 or from the front desk at the park district's Park View Fitness Center at 1401 N. Midlothian Rd in Mundelein. The book explains how Diamond Lake was historically well known as a resort and recreation destination as well as the many ways that each of us can help preserve water quality and prevent pollution of this ancient and famous natural resource.
