Date Issued:
1985
Summary:
Radiochemistry, geochemistry, and hydrogeology of the surficial, intermediate and Florida aquifer systems are discussed within the framework of public health and water-supply needs of Sarasota County, Florida. Data were collected for this study from January 1976 to July 1980. Water samples were collected from existing wells that were open to specific water-bearing zones or from specific water-bearing zones in new wells before drilling. 110 water samples collected from discrete water-bearing zones were selected to interpret the distribution of radium-226. Occasional reference is made to radiochemical or hydrogeological information for nearby counties or Florida in general.
