Date Issued:
1972
Summary:
The purpose of the study was to evaluate (1) the hydrology of upper Old Tampa Bay under the conditions existing in 1966-69; (2) the hydrologic feasibility of freshening the bay; and (3) the possible hydrologic effects that freshening the bay might have on the aquifer system, particularly with respect to changes in both the level and chemical quality of water in the aquifers. This report summarizes the findings of the study. Its aim is to provide an evaluation of the surface- and ground-water resources of the area as related to the proposed freshening; to describe the aspects of hydrology and geology that relate to freshening of upper Old Tampa Bay; to evaluate possible hydrologic changes in the bay and contiguous area caused by the freshening; and to define the effect of freshening on the aquifer system.
