Waterway: Opinicon Lake

 Opinicon Lake is a lake in South Frontenac, Frontenac County and Rideau Lakes, United Counties of Leeds and Grenville in Eastern Ontario, Canada. This shallow lake was formed when Colonel John By built the Rideau Canal. It also is part of the Great Lakes Basin.  

The primary inflow is the Rideau Canal arriving, at the northwest, from Indian Lake over the control structures and lock at Chaffey’s Lock, which gives its name to the tourist and cottage community located there. Secondary inflows are: Loughborough Lake Creek, at the east, which flows into Hart Lake and then into Opinicon Lake; and Rock Lake Creek, at the southeast, arriving from Lower Rock Lake. The primary outflow, at the northeast, is over the control structures and lock at Davis Lock to Sand Lake. The canal eventually flows via the Cataraqui River to Lake Ontario.
