On September 15, 2003, a group of freeholders in Marshall County (the petitioners) filed a petition with the trial court for the creation of a conservancy district for property surrounding the southwest portion of Lake Maxinkuckee.

On December 3, 2003, the trial court held a hearing and found that the petitionersí petition satisfied Indiana Code section 14-33-2-16.2

The NRC held public hearings on July 22, 2004, and November 16, 2004, and filed a report with the trial court on November 18, 2004.

The freeholders opposed to the creation of the Conservancy District (the remonstrators) filed petitions opposing its creation on March 18 and March 28, 2005.

The trial court held a hearing on May 16, 2006, and issued an order on August 15, 2006, creating the Conservancy District #122 and dividing it into seven districts

The town began tracking that flow March 1, according to Porter...
