Description A team of Ecology investigators collected surface water samples from Audubon Lake and the upper reaches of Crab Creek to determine if the lake might be a source of nutrients to the creek. No water was observed flowing directly from Audubon Lake to nearby ponds and wetlands after melting of a near-record snowfall. Field measurements and trace element and ion characterization suggested Audubon Lake water had distinctly different chemical characteristics from upper Crab Creek. All lines of evidence suggest that Audubon Lake does not, or rarely, contributes surface water to upper Crab Creek.
