A group of Hudson Lake residents continue to work to find ways to keep the lake levels high.
In July, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources informed the Hudson Lake Conservation Association that they would not be receiving grant money to build pumps to raise the lake's water levels.
Over the years, the lake's water levels have decreased by 50%.
The group still plans to raise money by contacting local and federal government leaders and local businesses.
Meanwhile, the group did receive money to clean up the lake’s excessive weed problem.
Studies are also being done to find out why the lake's levels are diminishing.
“I think there has been enough studies done that it is probably a deficit of rainfall for whatever reason,” says Robin Scribailo from Purdue North Central.
Leaders say they would have to raise more than three hundred thousand dollars to run a water pump for four years.
