Ok great - thanks. I think I will use r.carve to carve the streams into the
DTM first and then use this procedure you have described. Do you with the
seed raster (for r.lake) if I convert the stream to raster, will ever cell
be a seed point (i.e. Water will be placed into every cell at a height of
x?)? If so, this is exactly what I need.
