Summary:
The purposes of this report are to: (1) describe the hydrogeology of the Floridan aquifer system in south Florida and its relation to the practice of subsurface storage, (2) discuss the rules and regulations concerned with the control of underground (subsurface) injection, (3) identify and quantify the types of liquid wastes which have been injected into the Floridan aquifer system, and (4) identify and summarize the results of pilot studies concerned with the storage of freshwater in the Floridan aquifer system. Water-bearing zones in the Floridan aquifer system that were receiving liquid wastes as of 1984 are identified and described. Legislation by federal and state governments that regulate underground injection is discussed. Data are presented on the injected amounts of brine from oil fields, treated wastewater from municipalities, liquid wastes from industries, and amounts of freshwater stored and recovered by pilot studies designed to explore use of freshwater injection, storage, and recovery as a water-supply alternative.
