The paper presents the results of long-term permafrost and hydrogeological research conducted by Melnikov Permafrost Institute in the area of one of the perennial intrapermafrost springs residing in the territory of Central Yakutia. Spatial boundaries of the intrapermafrost aquifer recharging Eruu spring are determined from the drilling and geophysical survey data. Results of the groundwater level monitoring data processing allowed to define conditions of groundwater accumulation and discharge, as well as to determine the major role of icings (aufeis) in the hydrodynamic regime of intrapermafrost waters. The revealed specific geothermal characteristics of the upper rock layers may serve as indicators of groundwater presence on the fourth (Bestyakhskaya) terrace of the Lena River, which is evidenced by the maximum thaw depth coinciding with the depth of zero annual amplitude.
