BROOKVILLE LAKE INFORMATION
Brookville Lake is located in Franklin and Union Counties in southeastern Indiana. Built by the US Army Corps of Engineers as a flood control lake, it is operated and managed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. There are 4 marinas on the lake. Kent's Harbor and Quakertown are privately run. Fairfield Marina is operated by the DNR. Hanna Creek, also operated by the DNR, is the lake's key sailing facility. It is the venue for most of the BLSA's social events.

With the lake level below summer pool, know where the water is thin. Even if you don't have a dock at Hanna Creek, Chris' methodology makes for an interesting read. Chris recently added the larger plot below. Chris noted: "With the lake level continuing to drop, I was back looking at the original map very closely. This zoom helped me. When I checked with the depth interpolation on the computer (detail that does not show up on the map) I see that the minimum depth to exit the dock area is 5.3 feet with say plus or minus 0.2 foot uncertainty." Thanks to Chris for the revised plot below showing the new location of the Hanna Creek docks."
