Summary:
The purpose of the investigation was to make a detailed study of the ground-water resources of Volusia County, Florida, with special emphasis on the problems of salt-water contamination. This report contains the results of that investigation. The major phases of the investigation included the following: 1) an inventory of existing wells to determine their location, depth, distribution, diameter, yield and other pertinent data, 2) the drilling of test wells in selected areas where sufficient information could not be obtained from existing wells, 3) chemical analyses to determine specific chemical characteristics of the ground water, 4) the collection and study of water-level records to determine seasonal fluctuations and progressive trends, 5) geologic studies to determine the character and extent of the various geologic formations as they relate to the occurrence of ground water, and 6) the determination of the water-transmitting and water-storage capacities of the aquifers.
