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 »

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:
Southern Brooksville Ridge (Region 7513)
This region is characterized by thick sands, and drainage is generally internal to the Floridan aquifer. The lakes tend to have higher pH, alkalinity, conductivity, and nitrogen than the region to the north (Northern Brooksville Ridge). Although a few lakes are acidic, the lakes are mostly neutral to alkaline, slightly colored, mesotrophic or eutrophic lakes. Some lake phosphorus values appear low, but the nutrients are taken up by dense aquatic macrophyte growth. The lakes in this region can be grouped into two groups: acidic, soft-water, mesotrophic lakes and alkaline, relatively hard, soft-water mesotrophic lakes.
