Abstract

This map presents the thickness of the confining bed overlying the Floridan aquifer in the Southwest Florida Water Management District and adjacent areas. The bed separates the surficial aquifer from the underlying Floridan aquifer. Lithologic logs and information from quarries were used in conjunction with an unpublished map to compile this map at 1:250,000 scale. Units included in the confining bed are: clay, sandy clay and marl, undifferentiated with respect to age, the Hawthorn Formation, and the unconsolidated sections of the Tampa Limestone. (Kosco-USGS)
