Some morphometric and water chemistry data
From the Jack Lake CHMC/NSDH Report (1986):

morphometric data
water data 3 lakes

So these are quite different lakes. Sandy Lake is  relatively deep,  Marsh Lake is shallow, and Jack Lake is very small and acidic. Sandy Lake and Jack Lake are deep enough to stratify (according to Brylinski, 2002, such lakes are larger than 1 ha and generally >3 m depth for brown-water lakes and >6 m for clear-water lakes). Jack Lake is a brown water lake, Sandy Lake has very little colour, Marsh Lake, some. Sandy Lake, but not Marsh Lake and Jack Lake receives waters from storm sewers.
