Summary

U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with Miami-Dade County, performed a sequential, aquifer stress test from August 15 to October 12, 2011, on the Floridan aquifer system at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant, in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Miami-Dade County stressed the Floridan aquifer system with four municipal injection wells at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant. Injection wells IW–1, IW–3, and IW–4 stressed the aquifer system with injection of as much as 1.8 cubic meters of effluent per second. Injection well IW–2 stressed the aquifer system with pressure release from the injection zone, caused by reverse flow of as much as 0.04 cubic meters of formation fluid mixed with effluent per second, such that [...]

Purpose

In conformance with the USGS strategy for water science (Evenson and others, 2013), the USGS, in cooperation with Miami-Dade County, conducted the sequential stress test described in this report to improve integrated science planning for water, clarify the linkage between human water use and the natural water cycle, and deliver water analyses to the Nation. The USGS will use measurements from the stress test, other measurements, and a numerical model to characterize the Floridan aquifer system at the North District WWTP with hydraulic tomography. Data described in this report will be used to integrate, into one study, subsurface effluent injection science needs of Miami-Dade County, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These data will improve integrated science planning for water and enhance a decision-support tool for water resources.
