Lake Disston is in the extreme southwestern corner of Flagler County, Florida. The lake is located east of the southern tip of the Crescent City Ridge and northwest of the northern tip of the Deland Ridge (see Fig. 8, Regional Geology). It resides in the Pamlico Terrace. Lake elevation at the time of the seismic survey was ~4.26 m (14 ft) NVGD. Lake Disston is oval shaped, ~4.2 x 2.4 km with a perimeter of 10.8 km and the surface area 15.5 km2. Average water depth during the survey was 1.5 to 1.8 m (5 - 6 ft). The lake is surrounded by a plain with 61 m (~20 ft) average elevation and is bordered on the north by marsh associated with Little Haw Creek. Woodlands occur to the south.
