Oakwood Lake's source of drinking are two deep groundwater wells; the lakes are not sources of drinking water. While Oakwood Lake Water District is responsible for maintaining the storm drains in streets throughout the community, the District is not responsible for the water quality in the lakes. It is important to recognize that lake water quality directly affects the health of the aquatic ecosystem. The catch basins in the streets drain directly to the lakes. Anything that enters the catch basins flows directly to the lakes and can affect them. For more information, please contact the Oakwood Shores Homeowners Association.
