Abstract

Historical water-quality data collected from January 1965 to September 1970 were used to prepare maps showing the generalized distribution of dissolved solids, hardness, and orthophosphate in streams and lakes in the Northwest Florida Water Management District. The regional concentration patterns shown on the maps are generalized and local variations may be expected. The dissolved-solids concentrations generally range from 10 to 150 milligrams per liter. Higher concentrations are found in the coastal area on tide affected streams. The concentrations of hardness as CaCO3 generally range from 5 to 140 milligrams per liter. The concentrations of dissolved orthophosphate generally range from 0 to 0.75 milligrams per liter. These maps provide information to those concerned with water resources management and establish a basis for comparing future water-quality data. (Woodard-USGS)
