Long Description:
The St. Johns River Water Management District is restoring Lake Apopka’s water quality and ecosystem health.

"Located in northwest Orange and southeast Lake counties, Lake Apopka is the headwaters of the Harris Chain of Lakes. Lake Apopka is fed by a natural spring, rainfall and stormwater runoff. Water from Lake Apopka flows through the Apopka-Beauclair Canal and into lakes Beauclair and Dora. From Lake Dora, water flows into Lake Eustis, then into Lake Griffin and then northward into the Ocklawaha River, which flows into the St. Johns River."
