How To Measure A Lake
Here are some guidelines for finding out the size of your lake or pond.
Measuring Volume (by foot)
Exact Square/Rectangular Bodies of Water:
L x W x D x 7.5 = Gallons
Irregular Square/Rectangular Bodies of Water:
avg. L x avg. W x avg. D x 7 = Gallons
Circular or Elliptical Bodies of Water:
L x W x D x 5.9 = Gallons
*L=length, W=width , D=depth
Measuring For Acre Ft.
Gallons ÷ 325,851.6 = Acre Ft.
L x W ÷ 43,560 = Surface Acre
