Evaluation of a Proposed Connector Well, Northeastern DeSoto County, Florida

Description: Abstract: At a 24,000-acre citrus grove, a connector well is proposed as a resource management tool for capturing water normally lost through evapotranspiration and by excess runoff. Such a well would connect the surficial sand aquifer with the deep, highly transmissive limestone Floridan Aquifer. Because of natural head differences, water would move by gravity flow from the sand into the Floridan Aquifer, thus replenishing water withdrawn for irrigation from the Floridan Aquifer. A 70-acre marsh was selected as the test site based on analyses of hydraulic conductivity, porosity, and water quality. Recharge rate through the connector well under steady-state conditions is estimated at 160 gallons per minute. The proposed connector well is designed to have 10-inch screens opposite zones in the 45-foot thick sand aquifer, be cased for 400 feet opposite confining beds and a secondary limestone aquifer, and be open hole for about 250 feet in the Floridan Aquifer. A graded-sand filter pack placed around the screened sections of the well will increase its efficiency.

Results of Deep-Well Injection Testing at Mulberry, Florida

Description: From abstract: At the Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation plant, Mulberry, Florida, high-chloride, acidic liquid wastes are injected into a dolomite section at depths below about 4,000 feet below land surface. Sonar caliper logs made in April 1976 revealed a solution chamber that is about 100 feet in height and has a maximum diameter of 23 feet in the injection zone.

Geohydrologic Evaluation of a Landfill in a Coastal Area, St. Petersburg, Florida

Description: Purpose and scope: This reports presents the results of a 2-year investigation by the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the city of St. Petersburg, to evaluate geohydrologic conditions at a landfill in a coastal area. The report defines and describes the geologic and geohydrologic units underlying the landfill, and examines the controls these units exert on the flow and quality of surface and ground water in the area. The study increases the understanding of the geohydrologic aspects of landfill operations and will be helpful in the selection of future landfill sites in similar coastal areas.

Uranium and Phosphate in the Western Part of the Bonny Lake Mine, Polk County, Florida

Description: From abstract: During the month of May 1950, the Davison Chemical Corporation, under contract with the Atomic Energy Commission, drilled 24 phosphate prospecting holes in the western part of the Bonny Lake mine, in the SW NW4 and the NW*SW4 sec. 32, T. 29 S., R. 24 E., Polk County, Fla. The purpose of this drilling was to obtain a comparison between tonnage and grade of uranium in the phosphate as indicated by prospecting, and the tonnage and grade of uranium in the phosphate products recovered in the mill. The results presented in this paper are based upon a study of drill cores, drill logs, gamma-ray logs, and the chemical analyses of drill-core samples.

Water-Resources Setting, Martin County, Florida

Description: From introduction: This report describes some basic principles of hydrology as they apply to Martin County. The major land features of the county are described first, then the hydrologic cycle and the county's surface-water and ground-water resource. Specific problems associated with population growth and the county's development, such as saltwater intrusion and water use, are sited and sections have been included in the report to deal with these problems.

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.
