Summary:
The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate effects of the 1980-1982 drought on the hydrologic system in southeast Florida and compare it with the previous droughts of 1961-1962 and 1970-1971. The droughts were analyzed from the standpoint of antecedent and transient hydrologic conditions and the effect of management practices by the South Florida Water Management District to alleviate extreme hydrologic conditions and minimize saltwater intrusion. Graphical and statistical analyses of rainfall, water levels, discharge, and chloride concentrations for selected stations are presented.
