Abstract

In accordance with your request that you be furnished with the results of our continuing studies on the western end of Fair Point Peninsula, Santa Rosa County, I am pleased to transmit herewith the following:

1. Hydrographs showing the mean daily water level in well Santa Rosa 102 from January 1952 to October 1954 and the chloride content of water from the Santa Rosa Island Authority Supply Well No. 2.

2. An Illustration showing the maximum and minimum observed stages of the water table and the chloride content of water samples collected from the test wells.

3. Table showing the monthly rainfall and the departures from normal at Pensecola from January through September 1954.

The hydrographs show that the water level in Santa Rosa 102 (old number T-7) reached both its highest and lowest observed levels during tile first 10 months of 1954. 'The water level stood about 7.5 feet above sea level early in January. Since that time the water level has declined more than 5 feet to a height above sea level of about 1.3 feet. The cruse of this decline is primarily attributable to low rainfall which, as may be seen from the enclosed table, was 26.37 inches below normal for the period from January through September.
