Hurshtown Reservoir was built in 1969 to provide the city of Fort Wayne with water in the event of a drought. It contains 1.8 billion gallons of water which are pumped in from the St. Joseph River. The lake itself is 260 acres surrounded by 100 acres of land. Average depth is approximately 20 feet with no submerged islands, buildings or trees.
It's great! Everyone is helpful! Thanks. Jim W.
