This report describes an investigation of ground-water flow and water quality in the sand aquifer of the Long Beach Peninsula. The peninsula is located in the southwestern corner of the State of Washington, is about 27 miles long, and has an average width of about miles. It is surrounded by seawater, by the Pacific Ocean on the west and Willapa Bay on the east.

Ground-water flow and water quality in the sand aquifer of Long Beach Peninsula, WashingtonAuthor: Blakemore E. Thomas. The extensive use of ground water throughout the Central and West Coast Basins of Los Angeles County during the first half of the 20th century resulted in declining water levels, widespread seawater intrusion, and deterioration of water quality along most reaches of the coast.

In order to control seawater intrusion in the West Coast Basin, freshwater is injected into a series of wells. Background. Most of Long Island, New York is entirely dependent on the underlying sole-source aquifer system, which currently supplies over million gallons a day (MGD) of freshwater from more than 1, public-supply wells to over million people in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

Find your county's groundwater programs. Local health departments can provide helpful guidance on siting and maintaining water-supply wells and often provide a water-testing service if you're concerned about the quality of the water in your domestic well (usually focused on nitrates, bacteria, and, in some counties, arsenic).

The hydrogeologic framework for the Floridan aquifer system (Williams and Kuniansky, ; Williams and Dixon, ) has been revised by incorporating new studies and data that have become available since the original framework established by the U.S.

Geological Survey in the s (Miller, ).Adjustments were made to the internal boundaries of the Upper and. The Water Quality Standards for Groundwaters of the State of Washington, Chapter Washington Administrative Code (WAC), sets standards to maintain the highest quality of groundwater.

Our goal is to protect existing and future beneficial uses of groundwater by reducing or eliminating pollution. a.) Aquifer names and all or part of the outcrop line shown on the Nationwide 'Principal Aquifer' map (Miller, James A., ), were used with the extent of each aquifer from the various chapters of the 'Ground Water Atlas of the United States' to create this coverage.

The largest scale map source available was used. AQUIFERS AND QUALITY OF GROUND WATER ALONG THE GULF COAST OF WESTERN FLORIDA By Jack T. Barraclough and Owen T.

Marsh ABSTRACT A study of electric logs, well cuttings, and chemical analyses of water from wells in the western Florida Panhandle reveals the relation of the quality of ground water to the geology. The Ground Water Resources Committee, a subcommittee of the LAAC, produced a map depicting areas of ground water significance at regional scale (,) (see Figure ) to give decision makers the basis for considering ground water as a factor in land acquisition under the Preservation Act (LAAC ).

In developing maps for their. Groundwater flow directions are controlled by the engineered recharge and by groundwater pumping from the many hundreds of wells distributed across the region (Shelton and others, ; Dawson and others, ).

Overview of Water Quality. GAMA’s Priority Basin Project. evaluates the quality of untreated ground-water. However, for context Author: Miranda S. Fram, Kenneth Belitz. Ground-water samples (table 6) were collected from wells in surficial aquifers that are sources of drinking-water supply.

Monitoring wells were installed in the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer system underlying 30 new urban (less than 25 years old), 20 old urban (greater than 25 years old), 15 agricultural, and 13 undeveloped land-use settings and each well was sampled.

The depth to the water table can change (rise or fall) depending on the time of year. During the late winter and spring when accumulated snow starts to melt and spring rainfall is plentiful, water on the surface infiltrates into the ground and the water table rises.

When water-loving plants start to grow again in the spring and precipitation gives way to hot, dry summers, the. The current understanding of the conceptual groundwater flow system (a combination of the hydrogeologic framework and how water moves into and out of the system) was developed for the FAS and adjacent systems based in part on previously published USGS Regional Aquifer-System Analysis studies (Sun and others, ), specifically many of the potentiometric maps and the.

The Magothy aquifer supplies more than 90% of the water used in Nassau County and about 50% of the water used in Suffolk County. The Lloyd Aquifer: Underlain by a bed of igneous and metamorphic bedrock dating from the Precambrian Era, the Lloyd Aquifer is the oldest and deepest of Long Island’s aquifers.

The Lloyd’s sand deposits. According to the USGS Estimated Use of Water in the United States inNassau and Suffolk counties utilized more than million gallons of groundwater per day for public, domestic, industrial, and irrigation uses.

The three most important Long Island aquifers are the Upper Glacial Aquifer, the Lloyd Aquifer, and the Magothy Aquifer. Pockets of saline water may be trapped within impermeable sediments in some areas.

Where recharge of fresh ground water is inhibited, saline water is at shallower depths. The fresh ground water that does recharge the deeper sediments of the shallow aquifer system flows over and above the heavier saltwater beneath the city.

fresh water. In coastal aquifers, water quality degradation resulting from saline water intrusion is a common issue of concern. Growing demands from industry, energy production, urban population centres and agriculture place an increasing strain on the quantity and quality of water resources.
