Summary
Abstract: The map shows the approxiamte western limit of the Biscayne aquifer in Miami-Dade County.

Southeastern Florida is underlain by geologic units of varying permeability from land surface to depths between 150 and 400 ft. These units form an unconfined aquifer system that is the source of most of the potable water used in the area. This body of geologic units is called the surficial ... View entire text
