Abstract

The first groundwater study by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Florida began in 1910. In 1930, a cooperative program of study was started with the Florida Geological Survey, and in 1938, the first groundwater office of the USGS was established in Miami. In fiscal year 1987, the USGS program in Florida included 35 active groundwater studies, all of which dealt with at least one of the principal groundwater issues. The 35 active studies were divided among the issues as follows: groundwater quality management, 9 studies; groundwater availability, 12 studies; seawater intrusion, 3 studies; contamination from wastewater disposal, 6 studies; contamination from landfills and hazardous waste sites, 3 studies; and contamination from agricultural practices, 2 studies.
