A quarry lake is a lake that is formed after a quarry has been dug through a mining operation.


During the mining process, water must be emptied. But after the mining operation has been abandoned, groundwater is allowed to seep in, and rainwater collects in the quarry.[1]

The depth of a quarry lake is dependent upon rainfall in the region.[2]
