Who We Are

We are a group of neighbors concerned about the water quality of the Loch Haven Chain of Lakes. To improve the overall health of the lakes, we have created a non-profit organization and gotten to work.

Why It's Important

A patchwork of agencies and jurisdictions oversee regulations applying to stormwater management, water quality, and lake health.  Community involvement ensures we are doing all we can to keep our lakes healthy. 

You Can Help

Please join us by signing up and getting involved with FLHCL.  Bring your time, treasure, and talents.  We still have lots to do and welcome all who share our commitment to the Loch Haven Lakes.

Big News of 2023

Florida's budget for 2023-2024 is now final and designates $1,350,000 to develop a plan for improving the Loch Haven Chain of Lakes!!!!!  This is a big WIN for our Lakes. Thank you to everybody who wrote emails and letters to our elected officials and pushed to have this legislation approved. We could not have done it without YOUR SUPPORT!    

The budget specifically allocates this money for "Development of a Flood Control and Long Term Nutrient Management Plan with Capital Improvement for the Loch Haven Chain of Lakes."  St. Johns River Water Management District will implement the plan and our group looks forward to meeting with them on next steps. 

We expect part of this funding will be spent to conduct a nutrient load study, which will be the starting point for developing a master plan to improve infrastructure and/or procedures. This improvement in infrastructure will then support higher water quality in our lakes and will help protect neighborhoods from flooding. This is a long game and we need your continued support to get to the finish line. In the meantime, we are thrilled to announce this new and exciting development! 

Mission Statement

To protect and improve the health of the Loch Haven Chain of Lakes for today and for the enjoyment of future generations. 

The Loch Haven Chain of Lakes is located in Orange County, Florida and drains to Howell Branch Creek, Lake Jessup, St. Johns River, and the Atlantic Ocean.
