The Huntington Reservoir was renamed J. Edward Roush Lake to honor the impact to the local area of J. Edward Roush, who served as a State Representative and State Senator in Indiana and a representative in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, manages public land at Roush Lake, along with that of seven other lakes in the state, including nearby Salamonie and Mississinewa lakes. The latter two, along with Roush, are known as the Upper Wabash Reservoirs. Under a lease with the Corps, the DNR operates and maintains the recreational facilities and wildlife areas at these properties. The Corps manages the dams and some recreational facilities immediately around the dams. The Corps also monitors and controls lake water levels.[1]
