Chapter 2: Inflow from upstream sources (I)

I have been told that the only inflow is from White Lake...but this may not be accurate. Some have mentioned St. George's Lake as one that empties into Sharbot Lake. There may be a creek or two that some of you will know about. In principle, as always, the amount of inflow is knowable once we have identified the source of the incoming and the rate of flow of water (volume, by time) from each source.

To get a measure of inflow from White Lake, take a look at the chapter on outflow. The outflow from Bennet Lake has been measured. This means it becomes possible to back things up to Sharbot Lake (outflow at the Fall River, which flows into Bennet Lake) and to White Lake (inflow to Sharbot Lake). Our calculations suggest the inflow rate to Sharbot Lake from White Lake is in the order of 16 cubic feet per second. Over a year, therefore, this adds about 500 million cubic feet per year to the volume of our Lake.
