Summary:
The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation and the Broward County Utilities Department, conducted a sampling reconnaissance of secondary treated effluent recovered from a moderately saline zone of the Floridan aquifer system. The sampling was conducted in Pompano Beach, Florida. The primary purpose of this investigation and report was to measure and describe the variation in levels of selected physical and chemical variables during a 69 million gallon backflow of the injected effluent. The data collection was designed to provide background and furnish documentation of the general efficacy of recovery of injected treated municpal effluent. 40 samples of backflowed effluent were collected for selected analyses during the 69 million gallon backflow period. The sampling periods were March to August 1975 and April 1976 to March 1977.
