Summary:
The purpose of this report is to evaluate the relation between flow and salinity in the Chassahowitzka River and Homosassa River estuaries and to illustrate the effects of reduced flow by water-supply diversion on salinity intrusion in both estuaries. Data on salinity, flow, and high tides are used to describe the distribution and movement of saltwater.
