Date Issued:

Summary:
The purpose of this report is to present the hydrologic concepts involved in artificially recharging the Floridan aquifer through connector wells by gravity flow and to formulate and evaluate models of various connector-well networks. The investigation was limited to eastern Orange County, an area whose general hydrology is known from previous investigations. The specific objectives of this investigation were to determine the quantity, quality, source and areal extent of water lost from the area by surface runoff and evapotranspiration; the quantity, quality and areal extent of water in the surficial sediments; the quantity of water that might be available for recharge; the means of inducingrecharge; the areas most hydrologically favorable for construction of recharge works; and the probability of recharge water remaining in storage as a discrete volume for future recovery.
