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:

    Green Swamp (Region 7526)

    The Green Swamp is a distinctive feature of the central Florida peninsula. It is an extensive area of flatland and swampland at a relatively high elevation, and contains the headwaters of the Withlacoochee, Oklawaha, Hillsborough, Peace, and Kissimmee rivers. It is not a continuous expanse of swamp, but a composite of many swamps interspersed with low ridges, hills, and flatlands. The water table is at or near the surface in much of the region, with large areas of standing water after heavy rainfall. Surface waters are generally colored and acidic, but there are few, if any, natural lakes.
