Summary

The Morris Bridge well field in west-central Florida, which is being developed may have a maximum well-field withdrawal of 40 million gallons per day. The water will be pumped from the Floridan aquifer--a sequence of carbonate rocks about 1,100 feet thick underlying surficial sand and clay deposits. A highly fractured and transmissive zone about 500 feet below National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 will supply a large proportion of the water. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional digital flow models were used to evaluate the hydrogeology of the area. The model-derived leakance distribution (a property of the confining bed) for a 285-square-mile area ranged from 0.00002 to 0.008 per day. Model-derived transmissivity values for the [...]
