Spring Fork Lake

Springfork Lake provides drinking water for the city of Sedalia. The lake covers 93 acres and has a large 6,950 acre watershed consisting of 52% grass land and pasture, 26% cropland, and 20% forest cover. The large ratio of watershed size to lake volume means that inputs from the watershed can have a large impact on water quality in the lake by reducing the lake’s ability to dilute inflows and settle out particulate matter.
