water testing, heart lake
Heart Lake is a 61.4 acre lake (0.248 km2
) located about 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Anacortes off of Heart Lake Road (Table 1; Figure 1). Heart Lake is separated into two basins and has a total shoreline length of 1.64 miles (2.645 km). The western basin is slightly larger and deeper that the eastern basin, but the maximum depth and average depth of the lake is only 5.8 and 2.7 meters, respectively. There are six seasonal sources of water flowing into the lake, including streams, wetlands, and runoff. The lake is situated at the headwaters for the Ace of Hearts Creek, which flows through Anacortes and empties into Fidalgo Bay.
