      Aquifers. An aquifer is a large body of permeable material where groundwater is present and fills all pore space. Good aquifers are those with high permeability such as poorly cemented sands, gravels, or highly fractured rock. An aquitard is a body of material with very low permeability. In general, tightly packed clays, well cemented sandstones, and igneous and metamorphic rocks lacking. resources – ground water. Water beneath the earth’s surface, or ground water, quenches our thirst, supports our crops and livestock, waters our lawns, and supplies industry throughout Alabama. If used wisely, ground water resources will never run out. However, lack of planning and careless actions can cause shortages or contamination of.

Sources of ground-water quality data The quality of water from the aquifer systems defined in the Aquifer Systems section of the Ground-Water Hydrology chapter is described using selected inorganic chemical analy.

Ground-Water Quality Beneath an Urban Residential and Commercial Area, Montgomery, Alabama, U.S. Geological Survey Water-Resources Investigations Report 02. A case history of an Alabama (Aley in Hydrogeologic assessment of ground water and surface water contamination resulting from the Florence, Ala., Municipal Landfill, p 35, ) landfill.

Groundwater contamination occurs when man-made products such as gasoline, oil, road salts and chemicals get into the groundwater and cause it to become unsafe and unfit for human use.

Materials from the land's surface can move through the soil and end up in the groundwater. the ground water (and associated contaminants) from another aquifer to enter the one being pumped.

This phenomenon is called interaquifer leakage. Thus, properly identifying and protecting the areas affected by well pumping is important to maintain ground water quality. Generally, the greater the distance between a source of contamination and a.

Groundwater is crutial to millions of Americans as well as many more worldwide. Groundwater provides drinking water to many. Thus, having reliably clean groundwater is of concern for many throughout the world.

But, groundwater can become contaminated with chemicals, biologic organisms, and other possibly-harmful agents. 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. The area overlying the Ogallala aquifer. Ground water contaminated with acid rain percolates through a limestone aquifer.

With longer residence time in the aquifer system, dissolved bicarbonate in the water will increase. dredging of a lake bottom. all of the above. Aquifers. Most of the void spaces in the rocks below the water table are filled with water.

Wherever these water-bearing rocks readily transmit water to wells or springs, they are called aquifers. Although ground water can move from one aquifer into another, it generally follows the more permeable pathways within the individual aquifers from the point of recharge (areas where materials above.

Vulnerability of Ground Water to Contamination, Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone, Bexar County, Texas, diagenetically modified limestone aquifer (Buszka and others, ) is the sole source of public-water supply and sources of contamination in any given area. The Floridan aquifer is the largest and deepest in the state.

It holds ground water like a sponge. Its holes allow the water to move freely through it. The Floridan aquifer stretches square miles beneath Florida and parts of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Wells are used to remove ground water from aquifers.

Groundwater contamination follows nearly everything else in this book because you need most of what precedes it to understand the many interwoven processes involved.

The fate of subsurface contamination depends on the local geology, groundwater flow patterns, pore-scale processes, and molecular-scale processes. Limestone terrain that has undergone dissolution (dissolving) by groundwater often forms karst topography, which is characterized by sinkholes, caves, and rapid underground drainage.

With its many conduits connecting the surface and subsurface, karst terrain makes for a highly sensitive aquifer. An aquifer is a geologic formation, a group of formations, or a part of a formation that contains sufficient saturated permeable material to yield significant quantities of water to groundwater wells and springs.

An example of a significant and sustainable carbonate aquifer is the Edwards Aquifer in central carbonate aquifer has historically been providing high quality water for. For several reasons, very little water is used from these limestones in the Pensacola area.

They are deeper than the sand-and-gravel aquifer, the water contains more dissolved minerals, and the southern parts of the limestone aquifers contain salt water. However, these limestone aquifers lie waiting as a ready reserve of usable water.

The most important limestone is the semi-consolidated Castle Hayne Limestone of Eocene age, which underlies an area of ab mi2 in eastern North Carolina, is more than ft thick in much of the area, and is the most productive aquifer in North Carolina.

Despite the slow movement of contamination through an aquifer, groundwater pollution often goes undetected for years, and as a result can spread over a large area. One chlorinated solvent plume in Arizona, for instance, is kilometers ( miles) wide and several kilometers long!.

Wells have been dug at A and B. Testing has shown the flow of groundwater to be 4 km/yr. If the people at A dump a pesticide into their well, how long will it probably take before well B becomes contaminated? The .The State of Florida, U.S.A., passed legislation in the early s and developed regulations applied to large withdrawals of groundwater.

These regulations require strict adherence to defining the impact on surface water, shallow Surficial Aquifers, and the deeper aquifers within the Floridan Aquifer System. These regulations require the development of a Regional Impact Statement and a.
