Date Issued:

Summary:
A two-dimensional numerical simulation of the Surficial Aquifer System on Pine Island was developed to produce estimates of available water based on several explicit constraints. The results suggest that while actual use may exceed the yield estimates produced by the optimization model in several localized inland areas, the overall criteria for maintaining the salt water interface along the coast is being upheld. The results of this analysis also suggest that under a 2 in 10 dry season there is a potential for salt water to encroach on coastal properties in response to pumpage.
