Most of Keystone Heights' lakes do not have a creek or stream to supply them with water. They are sometimes referred to as “seepage lakes”. This seepage comes from what is known as the Surficial Aquifer. The Surficial Aquifer gets its water from the water table and from the pressurized waters from the Floridan Aquifer and the Intermediate Aquifer. The lakes in Keystone Heights are very unique in the fact that they serve as a recharge to the Floridan Aquifer by capturing rainfall and slowly seeping down into the aquifer.
Our lakes over the last 30 years have suffered. The lakes are making a come back and levels are already beginning to rise. Save Our Lakes has been instrumental in this effort. They have worked tirelessly with the water management districts and other government bodies to restore the lakes in the area. They continue to work on the restoration process and to educate others about the issues at hand.
