Station description

The main stem of Thorndyke Creek begins in the northern region of the sub-basin at Sandy Shore Lake, and drains south to Thorndyke Bay on the east side of the Toandos Peninsula. The drainage area is 12.1 square miles for Thorndyke Creek and has a number of wetlands and seasonal lakes in the highland areas. Combining flow from Sandy Shore Lake with additional inflow from tributaries results in a stream of 13 plus miles in length.
