The subwatershed is bisected by Highway 5. The lake dominates the north, with the forest and woodland and grasslands of the Carver Park Reserve to the west and residential areas with low to medium impervious surface to the east. Land cover as classified by the Minnesota Land Cover Classification System (MLCCS) is illustrated in Figure 5a and Figure 5b. The southern half of the subwatershed is maintained or natural grassland and agriculture with scattered residential development.
