Continuing development of the coastline zone in the middle Gulf area of Florida is increasing the demand for ground water supplies, and in turn increasing the probability of salt-water intrusion. Methods must be developed to make long-range predictions on the effects of increased demands on the Floridan aquifer. The section selected for study lies in a line from the Gulf coast near Tarpon Springs to a point near Dade City and passes through the Eldridge-Wilde well field. A Hele-Shaw model has been built for this section, and all pertinent geological and hydrological features of the area are included. Steady-state characteristics of the aquifer system have been considered. In particular, the long-term effects due to pumping and artificial recharge were examined. (Modified author abstract)
