Approximate Western and Northern Limit of the Biscayne Aquifer in Broward County, USGS WRIR 87-4034, figure 37Entry ID: USGS_SOFIA_brwd_biscayne_limit_west_arc
Abstract: The approximate western and northern limits of the Biscayne aquifer are shown in this map. The limit is drawn where the thickness of very highly permeable limestone or calcareous sandstone is estimated to decrease to less than 10 feet. The sediments in the excluded area are predominantly muddy sands and shell or limestone that are generally not highly permeable.
Provide fundamental background information that is basic for qualitative or quantitative evaluations of the ground water resource and the hydraulic response of the system to natural or artificial stresses.
