Lake Depth Surveys, July 2007, March 2011

On July 15, 2007, a group of residents of Lake St. Catherine performed a depth survey of the Little Lake. The group used a thirty-foot probe marked off at two-foot intervals. Seventeen depth readings were taken, as seen below. The notations show approximate locations and indicate water depths, silt depth, the presence of weeds, and the total depth. As can be seen, the lake bottom is well over thirty feet in at lest seven locations. Silt depth ranges from zero to over 25 feet, with the majority of sites exceeding 15 feet. Weed cover at the south end of the lake is minimal, but the majority of the lake is heavily covered with a variety of weeds, and they are present at the surface of the water throughout most of the Little Lake.
