NEWMAN LAKE

In 2014, JMU's Newman Lake underwent several major environmental improvements, including: adding a reservoir to collect pollutants and sediments, reconstructing the shoreline to prevent erosion, and installing an aquatic bench for filtration and habitat restoration. A pathway along Bluestone Drive and around Newman Lake encourages visitors to walk or bike the entire perimeter of this iconic landmark. Courses, such as ISAT 112: Environmental Issues in Science and Technology, study the lake's water quality.

Newman Lake is location 3 on the tour map.
