Groundwater Permitting Model
St Johns River Water Management District,
Developed a regional multi-aquifer groundwater model spanning
19 counties in northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. The model simulates
complex subsurface hydrodynamics in four aquifers, which extend to 2,500
feet below ground, and contain water quality ranging from fresh to relict-seawater.
The model is to be used as the primary technical tool by the District
for Water Supply Needs and Sources Assessment mandated by the Florida
legislature for managing water resources over a 25-year planning horizon.
