Water Resources of the Santa Fe River Basin, Florida

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this report is to present an analysis of the stream-aquifer system of the Santa Fe River basin, including the quantity and quality of water available from each source and their interrelation. Much information is available in previously published reports, but the basin has not been previously evaluated as a hydrologic unit.

Analog-Model Simulations for Secondary Canal Controls and Forward Pumping Water-Management Schemes in Southeast Florida

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate, through electrical analog model simulation, the effects of two specific water-management proposals in Dade County. Proposal one is the installation of a secondary control on Snake Creek Canal and proposal two is the forward pumping scheme.

Stratigraphy of Middle Tertiary Rocks in Part of West-Central Florida

Description: The following report presents the results of part of a geologic study of the phosphate deposits in central Florida. The purpose of the investigative research done in Florida is to determine the geologic history of the phosphate deposits and associated sediments, in order that the distribution of phosphate and uranium will be more clearly understood.

Ground-Water Resources of Coastal Citrus, Hernando and Southwestern Levy Counties, Florida

Description: From purpose and scope: In 1980, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Southwest Florida Water Management District, initiated an investigation to appraise the ground-water resources of coastal parts of Citrus, Hernando, and Levy Counties that are within the Southwest Florida Water Management District and to provide information necessary for the use and protection of the resource.

Chemical and Hydrologic Assessment of the Caloosahatchee River Basin, Lake Okeechobee to Franklin Lock, Florida

Description: From purpose and scope: The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with Lee County, conducted an investigation of the river in 1976-79. This investigation was planned to provide a broader base if information than heretofore available on the freshwater resources of the Caloosahatchee River basin, and in particular to provide information on water-quality conditions with emphasis on nutrients and algal growth. In addition to data collected during 1976-79, some earlier data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey were included to evaluate annual variation and trends.

Development and Application of an Assessment Protocol for Watershed Based Biomonitoring

Description: With numerous bioassessment methodologies available, a regional protocol needs to be developed to ensure that results are comparable. A regional assessment protocol was developed that includes collecting five benthic macroinvertebrate samples, identifying organisms to genus, and calculating the following metrics: Number of Taxa, Total Number of Individuals, Simpson's Diversity Index, Shannon's Diversity Index, Percent Contribution of Dominant Taxa, Hilsenhoffs Biotic Index, and Percent Contribution of Dipterans. Once the protocol was developed, it was used to assess the Bayou Chico tributaries and watershed. All three tributaries had been significantly impacted by human activity as had the watershed as a whole. This study indicates that a regional protocol could be developed and is appropriate for biomonitoring at the watershed scale.
