Puzzle Directions: Click on a puzzle piece and drag it where you want it. When you connect two pieces correctly, they will join together. This is an extra hard double-sided puzzle. The same map is printed on both sides the pieces. Some of the pieces are turned over to the wrong side. To flip a piece over, hold down the "T" key and click on the puzzle piece.

Title: Water Table Altitude and Groundwater Flow Direction for Lake Starr Projection: Unknown Source Bounding Coordinates: W: -81.36 E: -81.34 N: 27.58 S: 27.57
Description: This map from the U. S. Geological Survey Water Resources Investigation Report number 00-4030 shows the water table configurations at Lake Starr during representative high water and low water conditions. Contour lines show equal water table altitude in feet above sea level, with well measurement values showing point water table altitudes. Dark arrows indicate the general direction of groundwater flow. Lake Starr, a 134-acre seepage lake of multiple sinkhole origin on the Lake Wales Ridge of central Florida, is typical of karst terrain lake hydrology in Florida, which is complex in its integral connection between surface and ground water.
