Ocala Limestone Lake

Origin and Hydrology of Orange Lake, Santa Fe Lake, and

The water table in the Ocala limestone is the local base level of erosion in southeastern Alachua County. The basin of Orange Lake has developed in that area as a result of the erosion of insoluble sediments of the plateau and solution of the Ocala limestone to that water plane. Usually, the lake fluctuates with the water table. The lake water sometimes becomes perched when impervious lake

Ocala Limestone Wikipedia

The Ocala Limestone consists of almost pure limestones with occasional dolomites. It can be subdivided into both lower and upper facies with the lower facies composed of a whitish to cream-colored, fine to medium grained, poorly to moderately hard, fossil rich grainstone and packstone. The upper Ocala is white and somewhat weak and poorly sorted.

Florida has unique origins. What would become the basement rocks of Florida were once part of other continents. Most of Florida's geological history occurred under the ocean, which explains why our entire state has hundreds of feet of limestone beneath it!

Separating the two zones is about 200 ft of less-permeable carbonate rock.
