Purpose

Morris Lake has been used as a source of drinking water for many years, but its capacity was previously unknown. In April 2018, the U.S. Geological Survey and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection conducted a bathymetric survey of Morris Lake using a multibeam echosounder to map of the reservoir to create a map of the bathymetric surface, bathymetric contour, and an elevation-area-capacity table. This bathymetric map is not to be used for navigational purposes.
