Welcome to a Florida Atlas of Lakes waterbody page where you can read about what's happening with this location and view detailed information about this location and its characteristics.
The Florida Atlas of Lakes (FAOL) is an edition of the Water Atlas. The goal of
the Florida Atlas of Lakes is to provide a statewide lake information site for lake
property owners, persons interested in Florida Lakes, scientists and Florida LAKEWATCH
volunteers. The Water Atlas presently serves 10 Florida Counties with fully integrated
water resource atlas websites.
Lake Ina is found within Polk County - a Water Atlas County. Please select here to view the Water Atlas lake page for Lake Ina.
You are on a page dedicated to Florida Lakes.
Florida has more lakes than any other state in the United States and these lakes represent one of Florida's most important natural resources.
The University of Florida's LAKEWATCH program, the University of South Florida's Water Atlas program and the Florida Lake Management Society are dedicated to protecting these critical resources through citizen education and support for citizen volunteer programs.
If you would like your lake to become a LAKEWATCH lake, please use the volunteer link on this page to contact a LAKEWATCH coordinator.
For additional information on the Water Atlas please use the Water Atlas contact link; to become a Florida Lake Management Society (FLMS) member please use the FLMS contact link.
We hope you enjoy this page and the many options provided here.
