Abstract: Lake-level declines in Brooklyn Lake, a karst lake in north-central Florida, have been investigated. Below average rainfall, vertical leakage to the underlying aquifer system, declining groundwater levels in the underlying aquifer system, and cessation of surface-water inflow since 1989 appear to be the major, interrelated factors that have contributed to the lake's recent decline to record low levels.
