Hydrogeology of the North Coast Limestone Aquifer System of Puerto Rico By Jesus Rodriguez-Martmez Abstract The North Coast Limestone aquifer system of Puerto Rico is composed of three regional hydrogeologic units: an upper aquifer that contains an underlying saltwater zone near the coast, a middle confining unit, and a lower by: 4.   A well system to recover usable water from a freshwater-saltwater aquifer in Puerto Rico.

A well system to recover usable water from a freshwater-saltwater aquifer in Puerto Rico. While the focus is on resultant limitation in the agricultural usage of ground water, the book . The hydrogeologic framework for the Floridan aquifer system (Williams and Kuniansky, ; Williams and Dixon, ) has been revised by incorporating new studies and data that have become available since the original framework established by the U.S. Geological Survey in the s (Miller, ).Adjustments were made to the internal boundaries of the Upper and Lower Floridan aquifers as well.

In Figure 5 a contour plot of the freshwater and salt water interface is shown. The location of the ”” contour line, which represents the toe of the saltwater intrusion wedge, occurs at a distance from the center of the island that varies between slightly below to feet, depending on direction.

Figure 1: Saltwater intrusion in a coastal aquifer environment (Barlow, ) In standard transport modeling (using MT3DMS), it is assumed that the solute is dilute and miscible (soluble within groundwater), and that solute density does not affect the groundwater flow behaviour. Speiran, ). The freshwater/saltwater interface in the Upper Floridan Aquifer was located to the northeast of Hilton Head Island under predevelopment conditions. The natural balance between recharge to the Upper Floridan Aquifer and discharge from the aquifer served to establish the position of the freshwater/saltwater boundary offshore.
