Cypress Tree Seep is located in the littoral zone of the southern shoreline of Lake Harris in the Yalaha area.

Lat 28.748069° N Long. 81.803837° W


This feature is an area of notably cool water, no more than several inches deep, and about ten feet in diameter. No vent was found, but the relatively cool temperature of the seep area, when compared with the surrounding warm water of the lake, indicates discharge of groundwater. The shallow water in and around the seep supports emergent vegetation, and the feature is named after a nearby cypress tree.

This seep was located using by aerial thermography and is documented in St. Johns River Water Management District's Special Publication SJ2008-SP7, Submerged Springs Site Documentation: August and September 2007. It was visited on September 12, 2007 by Tom Morris and Mark Long, of Karst Environmental Services, Inc. accompanied by Jeff Davis of the SJRWMD. A video of the spring is available from the SJRWMD.


This seep is undeveloped and is in Lake Harris at the shoreline.
