Lake Lelia

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.

Lake Lelia is found within Highlands County - a County not yet sponsored by the Water Atlas program. You can view any of the Water Atlas County/City programs at WaterAtlas.org.

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 are a LAKEWATCH volunteer for this lake, thank you for your service. This page is especially for you. Please contact Florida LAKEWATCH for information on how you can personalize this page to tell your lake's story. If you are not a LAKEWATCH volunteer and 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.

Support Florida LAKEWATCH View Announcement Attachment
Since 1991 Florida LAKEWATCH has collected reliable, long-term water quality data from over 1400 bodies of water from across Florida, processing more than 45,000 samples annually. While the Florida Legislature provides some funding, the impact of state budget cuts and rising costs means these funds only meet 40% of Florida LAKEWATCH's needs. to learn how you can help support this program, view the attachment.
