Does Lake Tuscawilla’s large overflow drain run directly into the Aquifer?

When we worked at the City of Ocala, we were told by many that the large drain in Lake Tuscawilla (the duck pond) dumps that run off water directly into OUR Aquifer. We also saw news reports on TV of deep wells being dug across Florida for dumping waste water further into the earth under the aquifer; some of these wells reaching several thousands of feet deep.
