Lake Levels of Herrington Lake




HLCL is governed by a Board of Directors which meets monthly.  The organization is managed by four HLCL Officers who oversee activities in various areas conducted by Standing Committees. We hold an annual meeting and conduct various fundraising and volunteer clean-up activities during each year.  Our direct dues paying membership is currently at 350 households and we continue to actively seek new members to help us accomplish our mission.






HLCL is an all volunteer, not-for-profit corporation created to restore the natural beauty and improve the environmental health of Herrington Lake. The organization performs this mission by directing and financing year-round clean-up operations on the lake's 2,940 acres of water surface and 325 miles of shoreline. All of this clean up work is perfromed by an independent subcontractor. HLCL also works with property owners, marina operators and boaters to improve public safety, discourage littering, and to provide information to the general public on a wide range of topics important to the future of the lake and its surrounding counties.

HLCL is the only entity, public or private, dedicated solely to this mission. It is independent of commercial enterprises and government agencies and is governed, managed, and staffed exclusively by volunteer members. There are no membership eligibility requirements other than payment of annual dues. Because HLCL is a tax exempt organization, your dues, donations, and other contributions are tax-deductible. HLCL members include local property owners, businesses, boaters, and others who enjoy the lake and want to help make it clean and safe.

It is hard to believe but the Herrington Lake Conservation League is now in its FIFTEENTH Year!

And the Board of Directors is planning some really great events to celebrate!

We will start at the annual Town Meeting, April 21 at the Burgin Independent School with a special guest speaker from the Kentucky Department of Transportation to fill us all in on the plans for Kennedy Mill Bridge.

Plan now to support the HLCL like never before!  And they said it couldn't be done!
