Diamond Lake History and Instructional Book Available for Free

Do you reside in the 12,000 year old lake shed of historic Diamond Lake? If so, there is a new book available about the history and ways you can help prevent pollution and other negative impacts on Diamond Lake.

The book titled, "Our Gem: a History and Stewardship Guide for Diamond Lake," was written and published with the assistance of a grant from the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission in 2017 and 2018.

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.

The book and grant are the result of 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.
