This map report presents the results of a bathymetric survey conducted as part of a 1990-92 study on the effects of sedimentation on Lake Michie, located in northeastern Durham County, North Carolina. Bathymetric data collected at the lake during 1990-92 indicate that, under normal pool conditions at the spillway elevation of 341.0 feet above sea level, the storage volume is 11,070 acre-feet, and the surface area is 508.7 acres. The maximum depth recorded in the lake was 75 feet at approximately 500 feet upstream of Lake Michie Dam.
