2.2.1 Topography and Drainage

The Schutz Lake subwatershed is located within the Lonsdale-Lerdal till region, and the topography is typical of that region - rolling and hilly with steep slopes abutting Schutz Lake and the wetland on the north.

The HHPLS subdivided the subwatershed into four subwatershed units, designated SL-1 through SL-4 (see Figure 2). Each subwatershed unit flows to the north, and the subwatershed discharges into an outlet under Highway 7 into Lake Minnetonka.
