Lake Description

Big Roche Cri Lake is located in north central Adams County and has a surface area of 205 acres, a shoreline length of 6.1 mile, a volume of 6,993 acre feet, a maximum depth of 20 feet and a mean depth of 9 feet.  The lake has a large tributary area and a relatively short detention time.  Development occurs on most lots around the lake and the area around the lake is not serviced by a public sanitary system (Phase I Lake Study Report, 2000).

The Cottonville Dam impounds water to form the Big Roche Cri Lake.  The dam is owned by Adams County who leases the operations to a private individual.  The dam currently is operated to produce hydroelectricity.
