The surficial aquifer system in Volusia County comprises Miocene to Hotocene age sediments that overlie the Floridan aquifer system. The sediments consist of sand, sandy day, shell, and calcareous silty day, that together range in thickness from about 40 to more than feet Locally, the surficial aquifer system can.   Surficial Aquifer System Top The surficial aquifer system in Florida includes any otherwise undefined aquifers that are present at land surface. Unlike the sand and gravel aquifer and the Biscayne aquifer, which supply water to large municipalities, the surficial aquifer is mainly used for domestic, commercial, or small municipal supplies. Covering more than 4, square miles in southeastern Florida, the Biscayne aquifer is a surficial aquifer. It is the most intensely used water source in Florida, supplying water to Miami-Dade, Broward and southern Palm Beach counties, one of the most densely populated areas in the state with more than 5 million residents. HYDROGEOLOGY OF THE SURFICIAL AND INTERMEDIATE AQUIFERS OF CENTRAL SARASOTA COUNTY, FLORIDA By A. D. Duerr and R. M. Wolansky ABSTRACT The hydrogeologic units underlying a square-mile area in central Sarasota County, Florida, consist of the surficial aquifer.

Hydrogeology of the surficial aquifer system, Dade County, Florida / By John E. Fish, Mark T. Stewart, Geological Survey (U.S.) and South Florida Water Management District (Fla.) Abstract. HYDROGEOLOGY. Geologic units of varying permeability underlie southeastern Florida from land surface to depths between about to feet. These units constitute the unconfined surficial aquifer system, which is the principal source of potable water used in southeastern Florida (Fish and Stewart, ).In Miami-Dade County, a highly permeable part of the aquifer system has been named the. The Floridan aquifer is a regional, karst (carbonate) groundwater system that underlies Florida and the Coastal Plain portions of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina (Johnston and Miller, ; Fig. 1).Extensive portions of the regional aquifer are submerged beneath the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, extending to the margin of the continental shelf (platform/plateau, not shown in Fig. 1).   Hydrogeology, aquifer characteristics, and groundwater flow of the surficial aquifer system, Broward County, Florida.
