2.2.1 Topography and Drainage

The subwatershed is located within the Lonsdale-Lerdal till region, an area characterized by thinly spread glacial drift and circular, level-topped hills.   The 2003 MCWD Hydrologic, Hydraulic, and Pollutant Loading Study (HHPLS) subdivided the Painter Creek subwatershed into 26 subwatershed units, designated PC-1 through PC-26 (see Figure 2).   

The upper subwatershed drains through streams and channels to Katrina Lake in the Baker Park Reserve in the upper subwatershed.  Painter Creek is the outlet of Katrina Lake, flowing 6.2 miles south and east from the lake to Jennings Bay.
