Date Issued:

Summary:
Lee County occurs in the geographic middle of the southern part of the Florida Platform. The geology of this region is rather unique, because there is a succession of carbonate sediments followed by a complex mix of siliciclastic sediments (beginning in the Oligocene). The geographic location of the county and the mixing of the sediments caused the aquifer system beneath the county to be quite complex with numerous different aquifers present.

Summary: Lee County occurs in the geographic middle of the southern part of the Florida Platform. The geology of this region is rather unique, because there is a succession of carbonate sediments followed by a complex mix of siliciclastic sediments (beginning in the Oligocene). The geographic location of the county and the mixing of the sediments caused the aquifer system beneath the county to be quite complex with numerous different aquifers present.
Summary: It is critical to understand the geology and hydrology of this area because many of the aquifers are or will be used for water supply. Also, the deep aquifer system is used for the disposal of liquid wastes, such as oil field brines, concentrates from desalination plants, and treated domestic wastewater.
