Orange Lake has a surface area of approximately 33 acres, a maximum depth of 10.5 feet, and a mean or average depth of 2.9 feet. The lake contains about 98 acre-feet of water, which equates to 32 million gallons. The lake has a shoreline about 1.0 mile long. Water drains to Orange Lake via several inlets and the lake is also fed by a spring. Orange Lake’s outlet flows southeast into a tributary to the Rouge River and on to the Detroit River.

Lake Board Information

At the request of residents, a Lake Improvement Board was convened for Orange Lake in 2003. The Lake Improvement Board was established as a mechanism to address apparent water quality concerns within the lake. Later that year, the Orange Lake Improvement Board began a study to quantify the water quality issues impacting Orange Lake and determine what actions, if any, were required to correct these issues. For more information regarding this study and for Lake Board assessment information, follow the links below.
