 Lancaster County Flood Control Lakes



Did you get a letter from us? We are in the process of updating our Emergency Action Plan. Thank you for our support with this project.


    The Cane Creek Watershed Board of Directors oversees the four lakes which protect the city of Lancaster, and the Little Lynches Watershed Board of Directors oversees the one which protects the town of Kershaw.       

   The Directors serve without pay to inspect the lakes’ dams and ensure maintenance work is done to keep the dams in good shape. The Directors are elected officials, and their names appear on the ballot in the General Election. The position is non-partisan. They serve because they are concerned about their communities and fellow citizens. There are five directors on each Watershed Board. Directors must live in the watershed district they serve.

       For more information you can contact Amanda Roberts at 803-286-4455 ext 100.
