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:

Central Valley (Region 7508)

The lakes in this region are generally large, shallow, and eutrophic: nitrogen, phosphorus, and chlorophyll levels are high, and Secchi disk transparency is low. The lakes tend to have abundant macrophytes or are green with algae. The wide range of values for this lake region (shown in the table below) underscores the fact that lake water characteristics within the region, as well as lake size and type are variable. The northern lakes lie in sandy deposits and tend to have low mineral content. The southern lakes often receive mineralized groundwater as well as surface inflows through nutrient-rich soils, and are usually classified as eutrophic hardwater lakes.
