Chain O' Lakes, Waupaca County - Critical Habitat Designation
The Waupaca Chain O' Lakes is a unique collection of 22 interconnected lakes in Southwestern Waupaca County. Theses lakes are fed by springs along with Emmons and Hartman Creeks. Water exits the system from Long Lake through the Crystal River. The lakes of the Waupaca Chain are very deep in comparison with their surface area. This creates a narrow littoral zone-- the area of a lake where light can reach the bottom allowing the growth of rooted vegetation.
