Abstract

On the basis of measurements in 664 selected wells from a network total of about 2,100 observation wells, ground-water levels during May 1975-May 1976 declined from 2 to 4 feet in the Floridan aquifer throughout most of north and central peninsular Florida. Hydrographs of 60 wells show that the downward trends of ground-water levels continued in several areas of heavy pumping. The most notable area was in west-central Polk County where levels declined to new record lows in 1975 and 1976. In northwest Florida, declines ranged from less than 1 foot to 2 feet in the sand-and-gravel aquifer. In the northeastern, eastern and southwestern coastal parts of the State, levels declined to new record lows. (Woodard-USGS)
