Abstract

This map report presents the thickness of the surficial deposits overlying the upper confining bed of the Floridan aquifer in the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The surficial deposits range in thickness from less than 25 feet in the western part of the district to greater than 250 feet in the eastern part. The surficial deposits include sand, clayey sand, shell, and shelly marl that occur in the Holocene sand, Pleistocene marine terrace sand, and unconsolidated parts of the Fort Thompson Formation, Caloosahatchee Marl, Alachua Formation, and Bone Valley Formation. Lithologic logs and information from quarries were used in conjunction with an unpublished map prepared during an earlier investigation to compile this map at 1:250,000 scale. (Kosco-USGS)
