Agenda - Conditional Use Hearing - 11/29/23

This is a Public Water Notification for the entire water service area of Indian Lake Borough. 

Indian Lake Borough experienced a break overnight in the 8-inch main between the Cherry Lane Tank and the Peninsula service area, along Peninsula Drive near Clear Run Road, and repairs were made around 3:00 p.m.this afternoon, 11/24/2023.  This main line also fills both the Peninbsula and Buckstown tanks so the entirety of our water system is under a Boil Water Notice until samples can be analyzed.
To properly boil water, you need to bring the water to a boil and let boil for one minute before shutting off the heat. Once the water cools, you can use the water for consumption.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

Thank You.

Snowmobiles and ATVs; Sharing the Road

Council enacted Ordinance 187 permitting joint use of Borough roadways for properly registered and operated and insured snowmobiles and ATVs. This Ordinance is permitted by recent changes in state laws and is viewed as important legislation for recreational and recreation-friendly communities such as ours.

The Ordinance is available by clicking the link below. There are many important provisions, restrictions, limitations and nuance in the Ordinance and, more importantly, the underlying state laws.

Golf Carts are specifically excluded from PA's ATV, Snowmobile or NEV regulations and provisions, and are thus NOT permitted under these ordinances.

At our Town Meetings, Bill Kirkpatrick talks about our weeds.  Not all weeds are bad.  The weeds we deal with show we have a healthy, balanced Lake.  The 3 major weed types are covered in the links below:




Remember that different Lakes and bodies of water have vastly different environments.  Moving your boat/trailer between locations can be our biggest vulnerability to Indian Lake.  The following steps can greatly reduce the risk...

  • Dry your boat/trailer at least 7-10 days
  • Use a Chlorine/Bleach solution to rinse
  • Pressure Wash before launching in Indian Lake
  • Run Engine with boot/fresh water intake
