Abstract

Flooding of some roads and agricultural lands has occurred in the Lake Nettie area of eastern McLean County. Part of the flooding was caused by the raising of the level of Lake Audubon to an elevation of 1,848 feet and the construction and filling of the McClusky Canal. Water levels have risen in the Lake Nettie aquifer as a result of raising the level of Lake Audubon. As of 1982, water levels have risen as much as 4 feet in the lower unit of the Lake Nettie aquifer and between 1 and 2 feet in the upper unit of the Lake Nettie aquifer, which is hydraulically connected to Lake Nettie and Crooked Lake. Water levels have risen in the Turtle Lake aquifer both as a result of raising the water level in Lake Audubon and the filling of McClusky Canal. Water levels have risen as much as 6 feet near the canal, but generally are less than 1 foot higher at distances of about 0.5 mile. (USGS)
