One measure of a lakes health is the tropic state, which relates to the amount of algae in the water. The average summer tropic state for the last 5 years was 45 (Mesotrophic) and was determined using satellite water clarity observations data. For a Deep Headwater lake, this is considered Excellent. Deep Headwater lakes stratify, or form separate layers of water, during the summer months and have a watershed area less than 4 square miles. Crooked Lake has been monitored by volunteers since 1993.
