Date Issued:
1983
Summary:
The purpose of the study was to design an effective network of wells for monitoring the location and movement of the saltwater-freshwater mixed zone in the Floridan aquifer in west-central Florida. This report presents proposed locations of wells for monitoring chloride concentrations in the coastal margin of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Selection of well sites was based on ground-water movement, centers of ground-water withdrawals, areas of increasing chloride concentrations, and the 1979 position of the 250-mg/L line of equal chloride concentration in the upper part of the Floridan aquifer.
