WELCOME To the Home Page for the Lake Chemung Riparian Association

Lake Chemung is located in Genoa Township in Livingston County Michigan The Lake Chemung Riparian Association (LCRA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the mutual benefit of those who own property or have deeded privileges to Lake Chemung. The organization was formed to assist with:

  • Lake pollution control through water testing, aquatic weed control, and influence of local road drainage.
  • Observation, reporting, and lake-user education concerning harmful water use activities.
  • To work with Township and County governments so that lake and building restrictions are maintained and upgraded, where possible, to protect and preserve the quality of the lake, and to take actions as may be deemed necessary by majority vote of the membership, to achieve the above objectives.

All Lake Chemung residents are encouraged to join and participate in the Association. Your help is needed to maintain the future well-being of the lake. In addition, it is a great way to get to know your neighbors! Sunrise Park is an incorporated community on Lake Chemung located off Grand River Avenue on the northwest side of the lake.  Sunrise Park has a representative that sits on the Lake Chemung Riparian Association Board.
