Distribution and Origin of Phosphate in the Land-Pebble Phosphate District of Florida

Description: From abstract: The land-pebble phosphate district of Florida is a part of the Gulf Coastal Plain. The geologic formations cropping out in the district are the Miocene Hawthorn, Pliocene Bone Valley, and Pleistocene terrace sands. The Bone Valley formation consists of a lower strongly phosphatic unit and an upper less phosphatic unit. This paper is concerned principally with the lower unit, which contains the bulk of the minable phosphate deposits of the district.

Airborne Radioactivity Surveys for Phosphate in Florida

Description: Introduction: Deposits of phosphate in Florida, located beyond the limits of known producing areas, have been reported by prospectors and mining companies. Much of the information has been based upon prospecting and exploration which was undertaken many years ago and as a result the published data relating to the occurrence of these deposits are fragmentary, and few details relating to specific locations and extent are available.

Geohydrology of the Cross-Florida Barge Canal Area with Special Reference to the Ocala Vicinity

Description: From preface: This report is concerned in general with the possible effects of the Cross-Florida Barge Canal on the pre-canal hydrologic regime of the area, and in particular with the effect of the canal on the natural levels, movement, and quality of the ground-water.

Origins and Distribution of Saline Ground Waters in the Floridian Aquifer in Coastal Southwest Florida

Description: From introduction: Recognizing the need for comprehensive information about these waters of variable quality, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Southwest Florida Water Management District, investigated their character and distribution in the Mansota and lower Peace Basins (fig. 1). This report presents the results of the study. Principal objectives were to: (1) develop a better understanding of areal water-quality variations, and (2) relate the information developed to the extant concepts of the areal geohydrologic system.

A Digital Model of the Floridian Aquifer, North of Tampa, Florida

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this report is to describe the development and calibration of a regional digital model of the Floridian aquifer in the Tampa Bay area. This model can be used to provide regional analyses of the effects of present and proposed pumping from the Floridian aquifer.

Salt-Water Movement in the Lower Withlacoochee-Cross-Florida Barge Canal Complex

Description: The intent of the investigation was to determine how salt water from the Gulf moves in the river-canal complex under the influence of various combinations of fresh-water discharge and ocean tide. Information about the extent of inland movement, concentration, frequency of occurrence, and residence times of salt water in the river and canal was sought, particularly during times of farthest upstream movement of the salt water.

Large-Scale Operations Management Test of Use of the White Amur for Control of Problem Aquatic Plants, Report 2: First Year Poststocking Results, Volume 2: The Fish, Mammals, and Waterfowl of Lake Conway, Florida

Description: Abstract: "Fish, waterfowl and wading birds, and aquatic mammal populations on Lake Conway were surveyed for 1 year after the introduction of the herbivorous fish, white amur (Ctenopharyngodon idella). Low water levels reduced littoral zone area, which lead to stunted panfish and poorer condition of largemouth bass. Vegetated samples supported more diverse fish populations than beach sites. White amur and migratory waterfowl consumed the same plant foods; continued reduction of submerged plants by white amur may adversely affect overwintering waterfowl populations. Aquatic mammals were influenced by removal of vegetation due to shoreline development."

Subsurface Storage of Freshwater in South Florida: A Prospectus

Description: From purpose and scope: This prospectus report presents no original investigative results, but relies upon those of studies documented separately for the preparation of synopses of diverse topics related to cyclic injection and recovery of freshwater in that part of south Florida underlain by saline artesian aquifers. The report is intended to aid the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other water managers by addressing fundamental issues...

Proposed Cross-Florida Barge Canal: Water Quality Aspects with a Section on Waste-Assimilative Capacity

Description: Abstract: The route of the partly completed Cross-Florida Barge Canal follows the St. Johns, Oklawaha and Withlacoochee Rivers. If the canal is ┬Ěcompleted, the Summit Reach, connecting the Oklawaha and Withlacoochee Rivers will be excavated into the Floridan aquifer. Large springs that discharge from this limestone and dolomite aquifer flow to the Oklawaha and Withlacoochee Rivers.

Municipal Solid-Waste Disposal and Ground-Water Quality in a Coastal Environment, West-Central Florida

Description: From introduction: This report explains how landfills can affect ground-water resources in a coastal environment. The report defines solid waste and briefly describes the four common methods for its disposal. The landfill method used in coastal west-central Florida is described in detail. It also presents hydrologic and geologic factors to be considered when locating landfills in a coastal environment and describes how to plan a water-quality monitoring program at a landfill site. Examples from other studies of the impact of landfills on ground water in coastal areas of west-central Florida are included.

Digital Model of Predevelopment Flow in the Tertiary Limestone (Floridian) Aquifer System in West-Central Florida

Description: From introduction: This study is part of a regional study of the Tertiary limestone aquifer system in the southeastern United States. The regional study encompasses all of Florida and extends into Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina--a total area of about 82,000 square miles.

Chemical, Physical, and Radiological Quality of Selected Public Water Supplies in Florida, January-May 1979

Description: Abstract: Most public water supplies sampled in Florida meet the National Interim Primary and Proposed Secondary Drinking Water Regulations. This conclusion is based on a water quality reconnaissance of 131 raw and treated public supplies throughout the State during the period January through May 1979. In a few public supplies, primary drinking water regulation maximum contaminant levels were exceeded for mercury, turbidity, and gross alpha particle activity. Secondary drinking water regulations were also occasionally exceeded in some public supplies for such parameters as chloride, pH, color, dissolved solids, iron, and manganese. These parameters, however, are more related to the aesthetic quality of drinking water than to public health aspects.
