Principal U. S. phosphate production is from central Florida where mining, processing, and waste disposal practices intimately associate the industry with water resources. Available radium-226 data from 1966 and from 1973-1976 were statistically analyzed to characterize radium in the water table, Upper Floridan, and Lower Floridan aquifers. Mined and unmined mineralized areas and nonmineralized areas in the primary study area in Polk, Hardee, Hillsborough, Manatee, and De Soto counties were studied. Log-normal probability plots and nonparametric statistical tests (Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, simultaneous multiple comparison) were used to analyze for central tendency, variance, and significant difference as functions of time, depth, and location.
