The Geist Reservoir Conservancy District boundaries include any neighborhood that contains a Geist waterfront or water-access (deeded boat dock) home. Geist is a unique area, with nearly as many docks on the water being used by non-waterfront owners as waterfront owners. Many of those docks are licensed to area residents off the water and scattered throughout the 40 or so Geist neighborhoods.

The reservoir is a shared asset for all in our community, meaning we all have a stake in its well-being. The lake offers plenty of benefits to the surrounding area, including higher property values! Maintaining the lake also maintains your home’s value. The lake also brings people together. We want to keep the fun going by controlling the vegetation to keep the lake safe for recreational use.
If the reservoir continues to deteriorate, property values (both on and off the water) will decrease. The CD will provide a revenue mechanism to provide funds to improve and maintain the reservoir long-term.
