Logging was an essential part of western Wisconsin's economy from the 1850s to the 1920s. The logging industry used Half Moon Lake (HML) in Eau Claire as a holding pond awaiting processing at sawmills along the lakeshore. During the logging era, industrial wastes such as bark, sawdust, and slabs, were dumped on top of a former natural lake bottom (fluvial gravels). The industrial waste has been hypothesized to be several meters thick throughout the lake. Volume calculations were determined from GPR profiles to create a bathymetric and thickness map of the organic waste in HML.
