That's not a lake. It's a retention pond.

Came here to say this.  If it's not deep enough to have thermal stratification, it's not a lake.

An apparent sinkhole has apparently swallowed an apparent small lake in an apparent Ocala neighborhood, apparently.

I think Florida will eventually collapse in on itself. WHAR WATER GOE?

For 5-7 years until the sinkhole swallows them too.

Florida is made of a combination of Swiss cheese and dry-rotted sponges. The fact that any building there is still standing is a miracle.

An "apparent sinkhole"? Where the hell else do you think the water went?

Apparently, the turtles took it and ran.

Alternately: "New conduit opens up to dump urban runoff directly into aquifer."

not so sure I'd want that fertilizer infused, algae fest to go directly into any aquifier.  I'd be screaming blue bloody murder if I had a well supplying my drinking water in the area.

/if it gets run off from the typical suburban area, especially a highly maintained one like a HMA property, you can bet your bottom dollar that any water standing at the surface has lots of fertilizer and other *delicious* things in it.

Actually, I would be suspect of ANY water in Florida because of the geology. Odds are pretty good that any aquifer with enough water to serve as a well most likely daylights somewhere nearby

Artist's conception of what a starved aquilifer might look like.

Please stop making fun of Florida. It's really not that bad here. Sometimes.

Usually, Florida does not literally suck.
