Lake Sumter is man made. I'm no expert but it seems no one knows where and when a sink hole will appear, so it could happen in Lake Sumter.
I think it would be harder to drain because of its size, depending on how it was dug out. I sure wouldn't worry about it. Plus, seeing that Sumter Square is the show place for the Developer, I'm sure it would be fixed as soon as possible.
As was mentioned before, when the Ashland pond drained, it drained two other ponds. They are all connected retention ponds.
I have no idea how Lake Sumter is built but it is a lake vs a pond.
