USGS releases overview of water quality in the Upper Floridan aquifer About 10 million people rely on groundwater from the Upper Floridan and surficial aquifers for drinking water. The Upper Floridan aquifer also is of primary importance to the region as a source of water for irrigation and as a source of crystal clear water that discharges to.

aquifer system that covers all of Florida and areas of Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. Th e Floridan is further subdivided into the Upper Floridan aquifer and the Lower Floridan aquifer. In west-central Florida, the Upper Floridan aquifer generally contains good water quality and is the principal source of water for much of the District.

Degradation of water quality is the contamination of water bodies like lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and ground water by pollutants.

The Lower Floridan aquifer is generally less permeable than the Upper Floridan aquifer and the water produced can be highly mineralized and/or saline; however, the Lower Floridan aquifer is relatively fresh water to the base of the system in central Florida and in updip areas of central and southern Georgia and Alabama.

Major ions, unstable field constitutents, and the environmental isotopes tritium, deuterium, and oxygen were measured in water from wells that are open to the uppermost producing zones of the upper Floridan Aquifer. Tritium analyses indicate that the unconfined aquifer in northern areas contains relatively young water that has entered the aquifer sincewhereas the confined aquifer.

South West Florida. Save Our Suwannee, Inc, A not-for-profit organization whose primary. of these aquifers may limit their use as sources of freshwater due to saltwater intrusion.

Saltwater intrusion and water-quality degradation have become two of the major constraints in groundwater management problems of coastal aquifers. Saltwater intrusion degrades water quality of production wells and consequently the wells have to be abandoned.

What are aquifers. In Florida, most of the fresh water we use comes from underground aquifers. Aquifers are composed of multiple layers of porous rock, such as limestone or sandstone, that hold water.

Cities and towns, businesses and agriculture draw much of their water supplies from these aquifers. Supplying approximately 90 percent of the state's drinking water, Florida's aquifers supply.

This map layer contains the shallowest principal aquifers of the state of Florida portrayed as polygons. The map layer was developed as part of the effort to produce the series "Ground Water Atlas of the United States". The published maps contain base and cultural features not included in these data.

This is a replacement for the July map layer called Principal Aquifers of the The report includes descriptions of the hydrogeologic framework of the study site; hydraulic characteristics of the aquifer system; and description of the ground-water quality.

The objectives of this report are to describe the hydrogeology at the test site, and evaluate an aquifer test conducted in the Upper Floridan aquifer at the test site.
