Summary
Abstract: ABSTRACT: The proposed work was divided into several phases: (1) collection of existing core samples and slab preparation of core samples, (2) lithologic examination, and (3) report preparation

Purpose: PURPOSE: The analysis of existing core samples represents an early-phase task authorized by the regional Aquifer Storage and Retrieval (ASR) Project Management Team. This effort was designed to characterize the lithology, stratigraphy, pore systems, and estimated permeability of the Upper Floridan Aquifer in the Lake Okeechobee area with the aim of predicting zones of preferred flow with the ...

Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: For purposes of this investigation and due to time and funding constraints, aquifer test data were obtained from published sources or contained within the files of the Southwest Florida Water Management District and South Florida Water Management District.


COMPLETENESS REPORT: Time constraints provided limited analysis of hydraulic datasets in a limited field study area. No original observational data sets were analytically or numerically reassessed, nor were test limitations and inherent hydraulic test assumptions evaluated. Reported transmissivity values from published and unpublished sources were accepted as being accurate. Open-hole thickness estimates were based on reported casing depths and total depth of wells.
Access Constraints ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: none
