|Summary:||The unconfined Biscayne aquifer underlies all of Dade County, Florida. This aquifer is wedge-shaped and comprised primarily of limestone, sandstone, and sand. Because of interest in the East Everglades area as a recharge area in Dade County, the Metropolitan Dade County Planning Department requested the U.S. Geological Survey to prepare a map defining the base of the Biscayne aquifer in the East Everglades.|
|Summary:||The purpose of this report is to present the results of the investigation in terms of geologic cross sections and a map of the study area designating the base of the aquifer so that a quick visual appraisal of the aquifer can be made by those interested in planning and managing the development of the East Everglades.|
