This article is about an older version of DF.

Underground pools can be found buried in mountains. They are about the size of a magma chamber but only two or three levels deep. This is a finite water source. If the water is drained or pumped out, it will not be replaced.

Finding an underground pool (or an underground river) is required for farming tower-caps for wood, but that water need not provide the irrigation for those tower-caps.

Underground pools are also inhabited by various dangerous creatures such as frogmen, lizardmen, snakemen, olmmen, cave crocodiles, giant toads, giant olms, and mud men.
