Abstract: The level of a lake supplying water to the LIZ-3 Dew Line Station, near the Chukchi Seacoast of Alaska, had fallen about a quarter of a meter. This lowering reduced the availability of water to the station during the winter and raised concern that the lake may continue to drain. A radar subsurface sounding survey of the lake was made in May 1984 to determine if the lake contained a deep area from which potable water could be drawn from under the ice during the winter. No acceptable deep areas were found. Recommendations are provided for preventing further drainage of the lake and for deepening a portion of the lake. A possible solution for making the sour water remaining under the winter lake ice acceptable for consumption is also presented.
