Maps are an important part of the work of the Glade Run Lake Conservancy. They allow us to better understand where important places are within the watershed of the lake, easily view our water quality sampling sites, and allow us to identify land owners located within the watershed that may be interested in obtaining a conservation or agricultural easement on their property.
The following map, created by Dr. Roy Weitzell of the Eden Hall Aquaculture Lab at Chatham University, showcases the location of the lake in relation to where it is found in Butler County. (See image in upper left corner of map.) It also highlights the many streams located in the area, several of which feed into Glade Run Lake.

Finally, information on the right side of the map conveys the larger waterbody systems that Glade Run Lake is tied to. In other words, these waterbodies are what indirectly connect Glade Run Lake to the ocean:
