Hydrogeologic factors affecting the availability and quality of ground water in the Temple Terrace area, Hillsborough County, Florida

Ground water occurs in two aquifers in the Temple Terrace area of Hillsborough County, Fla. The lower one is the artesian Floridan aquifer; the upper is the water-table aquifer. The Floridan aquifer is a thick sequence of limestone and dolomite layers which include several permeable zones that generally are treated as a single hydrologic unit. The...

Potentiometric surface of Floridan aquifer, Southwest Florida Water Management District and adjacent areas, September 1977

A potentiometric-surface map of the Southwest Florida Water Management District depicts the annual high water-level period. Potentiometric levels increased 15 to 30 feet between May 1977 and September 1977 in the citrus and farming sections of southeastern Hillsborough, northern Hardee, and southwestern Polk Counties. These areas are widely...

Water-quality assessment of runoff from a rural highway bridge near Tallahassee, Florida

Runoff from a rural highway bridge on U.S. 27 near Tallahassee, Florida, was found to have an insignificant water-quality loading impact on the Ochlockonee River. Potential annual-runoff loads on the bridge surface for virtually all constituents studied were less than one percent of those transported by the river at the study site. The loading...

Salt-water movement in the lower Withlacoochee River-Cross Florida Barge Canal Complex

Construction of the west end of the Cross Florida Barge Canal changed the regimen of the lower Withlacoochee River. The investigation was made to determine how salt water from the Gulf of Mexico moves in the river-canal complex, and how the factors that control salt-water movement--tides and discharge--have changed since canal construction. In the...

Climate and streamflow of Puerto Rico

The presently available data on streamflow, runoff rainfall, and temperature of Puerto Rico are evaluated, although the period of record is very short, with a view to contributing to the knowledge of hydrology of tropical islands. The average annual streamflow in Puerto Rico is 45 percent of the...

Fluctuations of ground-water levels in Puerto Rico resulting from earthquakes (1959-1961)

During the Chilean earthquake of May 22, 1960, intensity 8.5, 4 of 8 wells in Puerto Rico equipped with automatic recorders, recorded seismic fluctuations. The maximum double amplitude, 0.05 ft, was recorded at a well in bedrock near Coamo. Double amplitudes in 3 other wells ranged from slightly less than .01 to .02...
