Lakes and Ponds

Brown’s Creek watershed is home to a few small, shallow lakes (less than 15 feet deep) and several large open water wetlands/ponds that are locally regarded as lakes.  Shallow lakes and ponds are typically either in a "clear state" with cleaner water and dominated by aquatic plants or in a "turbid state" and dominated by algae.  Many of the lakes and ponds in our watershed also have drastic fluctuations in water level.  In its outreach efforts with residents and users, the District focuses on explaining these phenomenon and it’s implication on management strategies.
