Date Issued:
1967
Summary:
The purposes of this report are to: (1) determine the effects of ground-water pumpage on the hydrologic system for the period 1934-1965, with special reference to artesian water levels; (2) determine the areal pattern and magnitude of seasonal water-level fluctuations and long-term water-level trends; (3) predict possible future trends in ground-water conditions; (4) portray some of the hydrologic effects of lowered artesian water levels with respect to lake levels, sinkhole occurrence, position of the saline-fresh water interface, and (5) provide hydrologic information that will assist in the planning and development of the area's water resources and which will serve as a brief hydrologic background for more detailed studies, such as a quantitative evaluation of the aquifer system.
