Florida Ground Water Quality
Monitoring Network
Summary 1994-1997
by Jay Silvanima,  Paul Hansard, & David Ouellette


The purpose of this report is to present the results of the background water quality in each of Florida’s major potable aquifer systems for the time period October 1994 through September 1997. Establishing background water quality of the state’s major potable aquifers is one of several long-term goals of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (FDEP’s) Ground Water Quality Monitoring Program (Maddox et. al, 1992). The three basic goals of the statewide Ground Water Quality Monitoring Program are:

  • To establish the background and baseline ground water quality of major aquifer systems in the state;
  • To detect and predict changes in ground water quality resulting from the effects of various land uses and potential sources of contamination;
  • To disseminate water quality data generated by the network to local governments and to the public.
