The new definitive map of White Oak Lake

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A map of White Oak Lake was drawn from points on the shoreline established with the use of an electronic distance-measuring theodolite and a hand-held reflecting prism. Average water depths were determined along six transects. A planimeter was used to estimate the area of each section. The volume of each section was determined by multiplying the surface area by the average depth. The total area and volume of White Oak Lake were estimated to be 6.88 ha (17.0 acres) and 43,893 m{sup 3}(1,546,330 ft{sup 3}), respectively. The lake's surface area has been reduced at an average rate of 0.7% per ... continued below

A map of White Oak Lake was drawn from points on the shoreline established with the use of an electronic distance-measuring theodolite and a hand-held reflecting prism. Average water depths were determined along six transects. A planimeter was used to estimate the area of each section. The volume of each section was determined by multiplying the surface area by the average depth. The total area and volume of White Oak Lake were estimated to be 6.88 ha (17.0 acres) and 43,893 m{sup 3}(1,546,330 ft{sup 3}), respectively. The lake's surface area has been reduced at an average rate of 0.7% per year, and its volume has been reduced at an average rate of 1.1% per year. The volume of the lake can be reliably estimated only from current depth measurements throughout the lake, not from stage heights at the dam. The lake should be remapped periodically, and an estimate of the sediment volume should be made. 6 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.
