Holden City Lake near Holden and Kingsville, Missouri, 2020

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

Water supply lakes are the primary source of water for many communities in northern and western Missouri. Therefore, accurate and up-to-date estimates of lake capacity are important for managing and predicting adequate water supply. Many of the water supply lakes in Missouri were previously surveyed by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early 2000s (Richards, 2013) and in 2013 (Huizinga, 2014); however, years of potential sedimentation may have resulted in reduced water storage capacity. Periodic bathymetric surveys are useful to update the area/capacity table and to determine changes in the bathymetric surface. Holden City Lake is a water supply lake used by the city of Holden in west-central Missouri. The surface area of Holden City Lake is about 341 acres at the flood pool level of the emergency spillway (844.5 feet above the North American Vertical Datum of 1988). A previous bathymetric survey was completed in 2003 with a single-beam echosounder. In June 2020, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and in collaboration with the City of Holden, completed a bathymetric survey of Holden City Lake using a multibeam echosounder. The water-surface elevation during the survey was about 841.4 feet. The echosounder data can be combined with light detection and ranging (lidar) data to prepare a bathymetric map and a surface area and capacity table for the lake. The gridded bathymetric point data (HoldenCityLake2020_bathy_pts.zip) were computed on a 1.64-foot (0.50-meter) grid using the Combined Uncertainty and Bathymetry Estimator (CUBE) method, which is used as the source of points to create the bathymetric surface. Bathymetric quality-assurance data (HoldenCityLake2020_QA_raw.zip) were collected to evaluate the vertical accuracy of the gridded bathymetric point data. Each of these two zip files contains a shapefile with an attribute table. Attribute/column labels of each table are described in the "Entity and attribute" section of the metadata file.
