Conway Lake Watershed and Water Sample Locations
Updated: Mar 8
The Conway Lake watershed map shows the total area that drains into the lake from streams and runoff from rain and snow melt. The water that drains into the lake ultimately impacts water quality (e.g. turbidity, nutrients, pollutants), wildlife and plant habitats, and recreational use. The Conway Lake watershed encompasses approximately 22,400 acres and includes 19 smaller areas (catchments) that drain individual streams, or combinations of streams, into the lake. By far largest catchment is the Snow Brook Catchment which drains a large area south of the lake and includes Crystal Lake in Eaton.
Click the maps below to view two detailed watershed maps. All of the maps show topography, streams that drain into the lake, and water sampling locations. The first map also shows land use and habitats, while the second map highlights the watershed and topography. The third map shows the drainage area of individual streams (catchments). These maps can be printed at a scale of 24x36".
