Summary

The salinity of groundwater at the Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) Turkey Point Nuclear Plant in southeastern Florida is being evaluated. The power plant contains a large cooling canal system with warm water; which has salinities elevated above typical, natural surface water in southeastern Florida, circulating within the canals in the uppermost part the highly permeable karst carbonate Biscayne aquifer. The canal system is a closed system that does not discharge directly to fresh or marine surface water bodies. However, exchange between the canal system and groundwater has been postulated based on existing hydrologic information. A pilot study was conducted to determine if Continuous resistivity profiles could be used to determine [...]
