OUTLET: Detroit River to Lake Erie

NAME: French explorers discovered the lake in 1679, calling it Lac Sainte Claire in honor of Sainte Claire of Assisi whose feast day fell at that time. It was Sainte Claire who established an order of Franciscan nuns called the Order of the Poor Claires. Government officials and mapmakers later changed the spelling to the present form of Saint Clair, or St. Clair. This led to some confusion as to the true origin of the name. Another theory is that the lake was named after the first governor of the Northwest Territory: General Arthur St. Clair.

* Deepest measurement outside dredged navigation channel, which has a depth of 27 feet / 8.2 meters.
