Red-Tail Land Conservancy Opposes Mounds Lake Reservoir

In April 2015, the board of directors of the Red-Tail Land Conservancy officially issued the following statement in opposition to the Mounds Lake Reservoir project:

Red-tail Land Conservancy opposes the development of the reservoir on the White River in Madison and Delaware Counties known as Mounds Lake Reservoir. The reservoir would flood part of Mounds State Park and completely inundate Mounds Fen State Nature Preserve, the dedicated nature preserve found in the park, along the river.

Red-tail Land Conservancy believes that our state parks and nature preserves deserve strong protection. The reservoir would undermine the law of IC 14-31 and the Indiana Nature Preserve Act of 1967! By undermining state law and act, this could imperil all state nature preserves, other protected lands and the trusted investment by many.
