Shoreline Development Factor







The vast majority of Dixie Lake is shallow enough to support rooted plant growth.

The shoreline development factor indicates the degree of irregularity in the shape of the shoreline. That is, compared to a perfectly round lake with the same area as Dixie Lake (i.e., 107 acres), the shoreline of Dixie Lake is 2.6 times longer due to its convoluted shape.

On average, the entire volume of water in Dixie Lake is replenished every 152 days. Dixie Lake has a small low-head dam at the east end of the lake that controls the water level. The outlet flows into Susin Lake and is part of the Clinton River system which eventually flows into Lake St. Clair.
