Lake Study: Turkey Lakes Watershed Study
The Turkey Lakes Watershed (TLW) is 1 of 5 hydrologically \calibrated\ basins in eastern Canada that were originally devoted to process-oriented research into \acidrain\ effects. They were selected to cover a wide range of climatic and hydrological conditions, deposition magnitudes, and terrain characteristics.
Batchawana Lake is the headwater (highest elevation) lake in the TLW. It has two distinct basins, north and south (L1 and L2). Norberg Creek flows out of Batchawana Lake South and traverses a large change in elevation (497-388 meters above mean sea level) prior to entering Wishart Lake (L3). Norberg Creek then continues through Little Turkey Lake (L4) and Turkey Lake (L5) and finally discharges into the Batchawana River and ultimately Lake Superior.
The data associated to this page are separated into archival data from 1980 to 2006, and then current data from 2006 to current.
