Lakes and Ponds


Map with Lakes & Ponds Conditions

Available water could be a flowing spring oasis, a mud hole, or a stagnant pool. Don't rely on a single observation about water availability; consider alternate water sources as a backup. Take into consideration the timeliness of the observation. Consider recent weather conditions. Would water conditions be improving (due to rainfall) or getting worse (during hot weather) since the last reported observation? Water conditions can change quickly.
