    2 Hydrogeology and Analysis of Aquifer Characteristics in West-Central Pinellas County, Florida Purpose and Scope This report presents the results of a study by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with Pinellas County, to evaluate the brackish-water resources underlying the Walsingham Park study area in west-central Pinellas County. This aquifer system underlies an area of about , square miles in southern Alabama, southeastern Georgia, southern South Carolina, and all of Florida. The Floridan aquifer system provides water for several large cities, including Savannah and Brunswick in Georgia; and Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Orlando, and St. Petersburg in Florida.

Benefits of the Floridan aquifer system groundwater availability study include: Revised regional hydrogeologic framework: A revised hydrogeologic framework of the Floridan aquifer system will replace the disparate local and subregional frameworks that have been developed since the Regional Aquifer-System Analysis (RASA) study (Miller, ) and that currently serve as an impediment.

Groundwater is essential for domestic supplies, agriculture, and industry in the Floridan aquifer system (FAS) in Florida and parts of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Upper Floridan aquifer. The report describes the appli­ cation of four primary methods of estimating recharge to the Upper Floridan aquifer in the SRWMD: a water- budget method, a chloride mass-balance method, analysis of ground-water discharge to rivers, and Cited by: The relation between hydrogeology and water quality of the Lower Floridan aquifer in Duval County, Florida, and implications for monitoring movement of saline water by G.

The Floridan aquifer system, composed of the Upper and Lower Floridan aquifers, is a sequence of Paleogene carbonate rock which spans an area of aboutsquare miles (, km 2) in the southeastern United underlies the entire state of Florida and parts of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and South Carolina.

The Floridan aquifer in northeast Florida is comprised of limestone and dolomite beds of Tertiary age. These formations in ascending order are: the Cedar Keys Formation of Paleocene age; the Oldsmar Limestone, Lake City Limestone, Avon Park Limestone, and the Ocala Group, all of Eocene age; locally the Suwannee Limestone of Oligocene age; and limestone and sand beds at the base of the Hawthorn.

The Floridan aquifer system is the major source of water supply in northeastern Florida. Ground-water withdrawals in the area increased from about to million gallons per day from to (Marella, ; ).

The extensive underground reservoir currently supplies drinking water to about 10 million people residing across the area as well as 50% of the water that is used for.

Continuous (daily) water-level data collected at 29 monitoring-well cluster sites were analyzed to document variations in recharge between the surficial (SAS) and Floridan (FAS) aquifer systems in east-central and northeast Florida.

According to Darcy's law, changes in the water-level differentials (differentials) between these systems are proportional to changes in the vertical flux of water. The Floridan aquifer is one of the highest producing aquifers in the world. It is found throughout Florida and extends into the southern portions of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina.

This aquifer system is comprised of a sequence of limestone and dolomite, which thickens from about feet in Georgia to about feet in south Florida.

Floridan aquifer of the study area have brought about significant changes in the rates of recharge to and discharge from the Floridan aquifer. Model results indicate that the Lower Floridan aquifer now contributes more than twice the amount of flow to the Upper Floridan aquifer that it contributed in predevelopment times.

The Floridan aquifer system is one of the major sources of ground-water supplies in the United States. This highly productive aquifer system underlies all of Florida, southern Georgia, and small parts of adjoining Alabama and South Carolina, for a total area of aboutsquare miles.

About 3 billion gallons of water per day is withdrawn from the aquifer for all uses, and, in many areas.

In cases where advection dominates the transport of contaminants (see ChapterModeling Solute Transport Phenomena, Volume 4), little additional hydraulic information may be needed to esti.
