The northernmost lake in the watershed, Amelia Lake ranks among the healthiest shallow lakes in the Vadnais Lake Area WMO. The Lake is surrounded by a cattail wetland fringe and is on the top of a lakes chain that flows into Wilkinson Lake and eventually into East Vadnais Lake. A ditch on the north end of the Lake provides inflow to the lake, and at the southwest end, there is an outflow channel that flows west and south under Ash Street that eventually connects to Wilkinson Lake. As with most of the other lakes within VLAWMO, there is no public access on Amelia, and the Lake is often a gathering place for common varieties of waterfowl. There have been no vegetation or fish surveys completed on the lake, though VLAWMO's 2017-2026 Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan has a Sustainable Lake Managment Plan (SLMP) slated for Amelia Lake in 2019 that may include a bathymetry survey to find Lake depths, as well as possible vegetation and fish surveys. Due to Amelia's superior water quality and light development within its subwatershed, no water quality projects have been completed within the Lake's subcatchment area since VLAWMO began in 1983, and none are slated for the near future. The anticipated 2019 SLMP for Amelia Lake will allow for more information about the Lake's ecosystem.
