HAMILTON LAKE AT HAMILTON

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology


Hamilton Lake in Indiana was created in 1837 as a result of a dam being built on the headwaters of the Wabash River. The lake covers 800 acres and has an average depth of 25 feet. It is supplied by a combination of surface flow and snowpack from the surrounding area. The lake is a popular destination for recreational activities such as swimming, boating, and fishing. Agricultural uses include irrigation for nearby crops. In recent years, a focus has been put on improving the water quality of the lake through measures such as controlling nutrient runoff from surrounding farms. The lake is also home to a variety of wildlife, including fish, waterfowl, and turtles.
