Islands in the Trent Waters is an Indian reserve about 15 km north of Peterborough, Ontario on islands in Buckhorn Lake, Pigeon Lake, and Stony Lake. It is inhabited by members of the Curve Lake, Hiawatha, and Scugog First Nations.
Hill Island and the islands of the Admiralty Group are composed, for the most part, of the Rockport-type granite; on the mainland, excellent outcrops of this granite occur along the MacDonald-Cartier Freeway from Patterson Bay to Gananogue.
In the islands and northern areas of New York State the Nepean Formation is termed the upper Potsdam, the March is equivalent to the Theresa, and the Oxford to the Ogdensburg Formation.
For example, in 1970 and 1971, a series of chemical tests on the waters around and beneath Cedar Island clearly established that the well water on the island was derived from rainwater falling on the surface and infiltrating to the well, and was not derived from the surrounding lake water (Johnston, 1972).
