Summary:
The purposes of this investigation were to determine the source of salts in the soil and the process by which the salts accumulate. Investigation was centered in a 20-square mile area near the Homestead Air Force Base, in Dade County, Florida. Observation wells and piezometers were drilled to depths ranging from 1 to about 60 feet, in order to periodically collect data concerning water-levels and salinities at different depths in the soil and in the underlying Biscayne aquifer. Water-level and salinity data were also collected in nearby canals and ditches.
