The city of Keystone Heights is surrounded by lakes but most people don’t know that the lakes do not have a creek or stream to supply them with water. These lakes are 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 Floridan Aquifer is a portion of the principal artesian aquifer that extends into Florida from several states and is composed of carbonate rock and located beneath the coastal regions of the Southeastern United States.
The lakes in Keystone Heights are unique, they serve as a mechanism that acts as a recharger for the Florida Aquifer by capturing rainfall and slowly seeping down into the aquifer.
