Haile Sink, located north of Lake Kanapaha at the southwest end of Hogtown Prairie, is a naturally occurring recharge site. Haile Sink along with Lake Alice and Alachua Sink contribute recharge to the upper zone of the Floridan aquifer system. Hogtown Creek drains into Hogtown Prairie, which in turn drains into Haile Sink.

Recharge is a process where water moves downward from surface water to groundwater. Recharge is the primary method that water enters an aquifer. An example of recharge would be rainwater that seeps into the ground (infiltration) which is added to an aquifer.
