Water Levels

Water levels typically follow rainfall patterns during periods of wet weather and drought. From these data, one can get a picture of how recent flood or drought events compare to historical data. Learn more about lake water levels »

Bathymetric Maps and Depth Information

These are the latest available contour maps of the lake's bottom. These maps can be used to determine where "holes" (deep spots) exist on the lake bottom. Such areas are often productive for fishing. Learn more about bathymetric maps »

    Additional Hydrology and Geology Information

    The Lake Region Classification System is a tool used for grouping lakes based on similarities in physiography, geology, soils, hydrology, water chemistry, vegetation, and climate. It was created from a cooperative effort involving the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and researchers at the University of Florida's Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. There are a total of 47 Lake Region groups. These are used to provide a framework of the different types of lakes in the state so that management plans can be developed for groups of lakes with similar characteristics.

    The lake region this lake is located in is:

    Eastern Flatlands (Region 7510)

    Due to a variety of landform features and its latitudinal extent, the Eastern Flatlands forms a diverse lake region. There are a mix of different lake types in the region. St. Johns River lakes tend to be alkaline, hard, eutrophic, darkwater lakes. The upper St. Johns marsh lakes are also alkaline, eutrophic to mesotrophic, darkwater lakes, but the chemical concentrations are somewhat lower than in the north. Flatwoods lakes in the region are acid to slightly acid, dark, soft water lakes of moderate mineral content, with variable trophic states. Other lake types include coastal ridge lakes and dredged ponds that are found along the more populated seaboard area.
