Savage lake is located in Little Canada in the Gervais Creek subwatershed and is bisected by I-35E. Because it is divided by the highway, the eastern and western basins of the lake are connected by a pipe that flows from the west basin into the southwest corner of the eastern basin. Although called a lake, Savage Lake is actually a 27-acre wetland. West Savage Lake is 17.4 acres with a maximum depth of 5.9 feet; East Savage Lake is 9.6 acres with a maximum depth of 5.7 feet.
The outlet of East Savage Lake was replaced by the District in 2004. For more information on that project, visit the Savage Lake Outlet Improvement page.
