The Floridan aquifer system is a highly productive carbonate aquifer that provides drinking water to approximately 10 million people in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Water samples were collected from domestic wells in the Upper Floridan aquifer in these three States from through as part of the U.

Changes in Shallow Groundwater Quality Beneath Recently Urbanized Areas in the Memphis, Tennessee Area. Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) 48(2): is being monitored in the Albany–Dougherty County area and in several areas along the Georgia coast.

In the Albany area, nitrate as nitrogen concentrations in the Upper Floridan aquifer were determined in water from 25 wells during November and from 13 wells during November Frequently the glacial deposits and the bedrock are hydraulically interconnected.

The glacial deposits often provide recharge to the bedrock aquifers and serve as a source of water for shallow wells. Movement of poor-quality water from the bedrock into the glacial deposits may cause local ground-water quality problems.

In contrast to shallow groundwater quality, NO 3 –N in production wells operated on the five project dairies ranges from less than 1 to only 31 mg/l with an average of 12 mg/l.

Beginning in2, wells were sampled within the Inner Coastal Plain of Georgia in an effort to assess the quality of ground water in this major farm belt. The project was one aspect of an EPA‐sponsored program to assess ground‐water quality statewide.

Geological Survey Water-Resources Investigations Report94 p. The biggest demand for groundwater in Georgia comes from agriculture, which pumps as much as billion gallons of groundwater per day at the peak of the growing season.

South Georgia is underlain by a thick sequence (up to 4, feet) of sand, silt, clay, and limestone beds that thicken toward the south and east and are gently inclined in. The Nation's rivers and streams are a priceless resource, but pollution from urban and agricultural areas pose a threat to our water quality.

To understand the value of water quality, and to more effectively manage and protect the Nation's water resources, it's critical that we know the current status of water-quality conditions, and how and.

Therefore, although the chapter focuses on dissolved nitrate in shallow waters, there will be brief mention of related subjects such as nutrient uptake studies in agricultural areas, large-scale tracer experiments, groundwater contamination studies, food-web investigations, and uses of compound-specific stable isotope by: Water seeps through interconnected pores and joints in the soils and rocks until discharged to a surface- water body (e.g., stream, river, lake, or ocean).

The initial water chemistry, the amount of recharge, and the attenuation capacity of soils have a strong influence.

Ninety shallow wells were sampled for this study; 64 wells were sampled in by the U.S. Geological Survey and 26 wells were sampled in by the North Carolina Division of Water Quality. The increase can be attributed to an increase in public-supply water use, mainly in the metropolitan Atlanta area, and to an increase in agricultural water use, mostly in the Dougherty Plain area of southwest Georgia.
