Summary:
This report describes results of a study of the hydrology of the Reedy Creek Improvement District tree farm area where treated wastewater is used for irrigation. Included in this report are descriptions of: direction of movement and destination of the wastewater and constituents in the surficial aquifer system underlying the tree farm area; rate of movement of the wastewater front; effect of the wastewater application on water quality of the underlying aquifer and the areal extent of the wastewater plume in the surficial aquifer system; the nature of the processes affecting assimilation of the wastewater-related constituents in the ground-water system; and hydraulic characteristics of the surficial aquifer system. The area studied includes the entire tree farm area located to the north of Canal L-410. This investigation was conducted from October 1981 through September 1985. The work included installation of a monitoring well network in the surficial aquifer system, determination of lithology of the aquifer material, determination of transmissivity of the surfical aquifer system and sampling of the well network to characterize water quality of the surficial aquifer system underlying the tree farm and the surrounding area. The water-quality sampling was done four times between May 1983 and October 1984.
