Echo Lake

From Openwaterpedia
(Redirected from Echo)

Echo Lake is located in the town of Charleston in Orleans County, Vermont, an area known as the Northeast Kingdom. It is one of only two deep, cold, and oligotrophic lakes in the Clyde River system. The first Surveyor General of Vermont, Whitelaw, gave it the name of Echo Pond because when any sound was produced in its vicinity it was reverberated in various directions, producing a series of echoes.

The freshwater lake covers 530 acres and is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long and 0.75 miles (1.21 km) at its widest; its maximum depth is 129 feet (39m). The lake is fed by the outlet from Lake Seymour. The lake drains into empties into the Clyde River, Lake Memphremagog and, eventually, Canada's St. Lawrence River.
