Lakes are major factors in determining where suspended sediment is deposited and resuspended. The location for sediment deposition is correlated with water velocity. Water moving at faster velocities generally carries more sediment and at slower velocities deposits more sediment. Lakes can be contrasted with rivers or streams, which are usually flowing. However most lakes are fed and drained by rivers and streams. Most lakes have at least one natural outflow in the form of a river or stream, which maintain a lake's average level by allowing the drainage of excess water.
