Blue Pond is located in western Clay County. The lake borders on the Volusia Ridge Sets of the Eastern Flatwood District and the Interlachen Sand Hills of the Central Lakes District (see Fig. 7, Regional Geology). Lake level at the time of the seismic survey was about 40 m (130 ft) NGVD. Blue Pond is oval shaped, approximately 750 x 350 m with a perimeter of 4.6 km and a surface area of 1.3 km2. Average water depth during the survey was about 9 m (30 ft). Blue Pond is connected surficially to Sand Hill Lake to the south.
