Description Lake data were compiled for four lake-rich U.S. states: Maine, New Hampshire, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Only natural inland lakes were included in the database (i.e., no reservoirs). Lake water chemistry were collected from databases maintained by state agencies responsible for monitoring lakes under the Federal Clean Water Act, which requires standard procedures and quality assurance and quality control protocols. Lakes with surface area ≥ 1 ha and maximum depth ≥ 2 m were included in the dataset. Each lake was assigned a unique identifier. We quantified land cover, land use, and groundwater hydrology within a 500 m landscape buffer surrounding the lakes and within the Ecological Drainage Unit (EDU) region. Lake data came from the following state agencies: Maine Department of Environmental Protection, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s Lake Survey table (1/21/03); New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services; Michigan Department of Environmental Quality; Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The purpose of the dataset was to investigate lake and landscape controls on lake water chemistry across broad geographic regions.
