Lake Habeeb is an impoundment located in Rocky Gap State Park, in Allegany County, Maryland. The impoundment lies on Rocky Gap Run, a tributary of the Evitts Creek. The watershed lies in a valley between Evitts and Martin Mountains. Lake Habeeb is a highly used recreational facility, with a major resort, conference center and Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course at the south end of the lake.
On the basis of water quality problems associated with nutrients, Lake Habeeb in the Evitts Creek watershed (02141002) was identified on Maryland’s 1998 list of water quality limited segments (WQLSs) as being impaired. The document available below establishes a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for the nutrient phosphorus entering Lake Habeeb.
