Right on, Water flows into ponds, from, brooks, creeks, springs, smaller tributaries, etc. PONDING (the collection of water) and not really out (although it may escape in flood or at other times and places often man made for flood control)(does that fit gunkiemike?) Lakes Can be fed by the same sources and have exits... flows that leads to Rivers, that flow to seas oceans, Sounds, larger bodies of water that eventually drain into oceans. The common interchangeable term pond or lake, is a result of the new world order of the lazy lexicon that W Safire of the New York Times Sunday Magazine was the best at explaining.


There are many definitions out there these days and none are right or wrong. They're just names that don't have specific meanings anymore. It's not a lazyness factor at all. Locally that's how your area might define a pond. In New England it might be a depth thing. . . Read the USGS link above. I always thought from my decades in the wilderness it was a technically a depth difference for ponds and lakes. Likewise creek vs stream I alwasys thought was a factor of it being seasonal or not but none of it is "true" or "correct" on a nationwide scale.
