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. 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 system is one of the world's most productive. Water quality in the Upper Floridan Aquifer in the vicinity of drainage wells, Orlando, Florida by L. A Bradner,U.S. Dept. of the Interior, U.S.

The city of Orlando, Florida, and surrounding areas have used drainage wells to alleviate flooding and to control lake levels since In the greater Orlando area of about 75 square miles, about drainage wells are presently injecting an average of approximately 23 million gallons a day of surface water into the Upper Floridan aquifer, a zone of high transmissivity approximately feet.

Florida Aquifer Vulnerability Assessment (FAVA): Purpose: To predict the intrinsic relative vulnerability of Florida’s aquifer systems (FAS, SAS & IAS) to contamination from land surface Objective: To provide a scientifically defensible water-resource management and protection tool that will facilitate planning of.

These wells produce water from five major aquifers or aquifer systems. The major source of ground water supply in Florida is the Floridan Aquifer System, which underlies the entire state.

In the far western panhandle and in southern Florida, the Floridan aquifer system is deep, and produces salty and mineralized water. Thousands of deep artesian wells were drilled into the Upper Floridan aquifer in west-central Florida prior to well-drilling regulations adopted in the 's.

The wells were usually completed with a short length of casing through the unconsolidated sediments and were left Florida book to multiple aquifers containing water of varying quality. These open boreholes serve as a potential source of water.

The Floridan Aquifer System is the portion of a principal artesian aquifer that extends across several states. The principal artesian aquifer is the largest, oldest and deepest aquifer in the southeastern U.S. Ranging acrosssquare miles, it underlies all of Florida and parts of southern Alabama, southeastern Georgia and southern South.

Tens of millions of gallons of reprocessed water from the fertilizer plant in central Florida are likely to have seeped into the Floridan aquifer after the massive sinkhole opened : Ada Carr.

Note: BLS = Water Level in Feet Below Land Surface, RVD = Water Level referenced to a vertical datum. Because there are several places within the aquifer that contains saltwater, drainage wells are placed within the system for desalinizations purposes.

This concept is important in the areas of the Florida Keys where there is not any source of freshwater. Each day more than three billion gallons of water are prodcued from the Floridan Aquifer. The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States.

Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders. Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions.

Test drilling, field investigations, and digital modeling were completed at Fort Stewart, GA, during ?, to assess the geologic, hydraulic, and water-quality characteristics of the Floridan aquifer system and evaluate the effect of Lower Floridan aquifer (LFA) pumping on the Upper Floridan aquifer (UFA).

This work was performed pursuant to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S.

Adamski and Leel Knowles, Jr., USGS Water-Resources Investigations Report 01–   Hard water. There has long been a demand for Florida water softeners due to the high mineral content of most of its drinking water.

While high mineral content isn’t a health risk, it can cause problems in homes, such as: Mineral build-up in appliances, such as coffee makers or washing machines, that can reduce functionality. WATER QUALITY REPORT. YourWaterSystem Your drinking water comes from the Floridan aquifer, one of the major sources of groundwater in the United States.

Floridan wells are protected from surface chemical contamination by the Hawthorne formation, which is a thick layer of clay. 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. In addition, the aquifer system provides water for hundreds of thousands of people in smaller communities and rural areas. According to the Central Florida Water Initiative, Orlando is using as much water as it safely can from the supply in the Floridan Aquifer, where.

The seven ground-water flow models of the Upper Floridan aquifer (UFA) encompass southwest and west-central Florida ; study area hydrology and model details are presented in Ryder (), Yobbi (, ), Barcelo and Basso (), Blandford and.

The Floridan aquifer is a major source of drinking water in the state. One of the highest-producing aquifers in the world, it underlies all of Florida and extends into southern Alabama, Georgia.

The Importance of the Lower Floridan Aquifer in FL’s Water Future With Florida becoming the third-most populated state, it has been said that groundwater, or more specifically the Floridan aquifer system (FAS), may be approaching a critical tipping point as a relatively cheap and accessible water supply.

The chloride content of water in the aquifer in the vicinity of Jacksonville and Fernandina has increased from 22 to ppm in wells more than 1, feet deep. Thus far, impermeable zones below the fresh water have prevented serious salt‐water contamination in shallower wells at Jacksonville and Fernandiua.

Its holes allow the water to move freely through it. The Floridan aquifer stretches square miles beneath Florida and parts of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Wells are used to remove ground water from aquifers.

Wells may exist in all shapes and sizes, but. 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.

Underlying the Upper Floridan aquifer is a sequence of impermeable rocks, which serve as a confi ning unit separating the fresher water of the Upper Floridan aquifer. Bradner LA () Water quality in the upper Floridan aquifer in the vicinity of drainage wells, Orlando, Florida.
