Montezuma's Well is a limestone sinkhole. It was an imp0ortant source of water for the Sinagua people from the 100s to the 1300s. It is fed by a warm spring that produces 1.5 million gallons of water each day. The water has a high carbon dioxide content so fish cannot survive in the lake. The water drains through a swallet and emerges on the far side of the rock wall. The Sinagua people dug an irrigation ditch to direct the outflow to their croplands.
