    Sea-level rise and coastal groundwater inundation and shoaling at select sites in California, USA. Vulnerability analysis is hampered by the lack of data on shallow coastal aquifers, which commonly are not studied because they are not suitable for domestic or agricultural use. SLR-driven groundwater inundation and shoaling at Stinson Cited by: TDS violated the limit ( mg/l) of the Egyptian standards for drinking water quality in many localities. Extreme concentrations of Fe 2+, Mn 2+, Zn 2+, Cu 2+, Ni 2+, are mostly related to their natural content in the water-bearing sediments and/or to contamination from industrial leakage. Very high nitrate concentrations exceeding the Cited by:

    Risk of Saltwater Intrusion in Coastal Bedrock Aquifers: Gulf Islands, BC in the bedrock aquifers of the Gulf Islands completed as part of a study conducted by Simon Fraser University and BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations as part of a project “Risk Assessment Framework for Coastal Bedrock Aquifers”Author: Jeanette Klassen, Diana M. Allen. The proximity of coastal aquifers to saltwater creates unique issues with respect to ground water sustainability in coastal regions. More than 65 million people live in Atlantic coastal communities and withdraw about billion gallons each day from aquifers. The water is used primarily for public supplies, agriculture and industry.

    Apr 25,  · Intrusion of saltwater is the most common contamination occurrence in coastal aquifers. A number of several methods have been used to control seawater intrusion to protect groundwater reserves in coastal aquifers. Extensive research has been carried out Cited by: 1. Office of Science Research Project Summary August, Authors Joel A. Pecchioli 1 and Yuan Ding2 Abstract Groundwater flow and contaminant transport processes in coastal aquifers can be complicated by tidal effects adjacent to the coast. This study was designed to evaluate the significance of tidal influences on contaminant.

Get this from a library. Water-quality reconnaissance of Cretaceous aquifers in the southeastern coastal plain. [Gerald L Feder; Roger W Lee; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Jan 19,  · The Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system underlies an area of more thansquare miles in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and South Carolina.

The aquifer system ranks 15th in the nation as a source of groundwater for public supply, with about million gallons per day pumped for this and other uses in HA G Preview and download Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system figures--(69 thru 84) Each of the regional aquifers of the Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system has been named for a major river that crosses the outcrop belt of the aquifer and, thus, exposes the aquifer.

The Southeastern Coastal Plain aquifer system is a multi-aquifer system that consists of three major aquifers that comprise unconsolidated and poorly consolidated clastic sedimentary strata of Tertiary and Cretaceous age. Most of this aquifer system underlies Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina and is described in Chapter G of this Atlas.

Groundwater provides nearly 50 percent of the Nation’s drinking water. To help protect this vital resource, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project assesses groundwater quality in aquifers that are important sources of drinking water.

The principal sources of water-supply in Cretaceous rocks in the central Coastal Plain of North Carolina are the Peedee, Black Creek, and upper Cape Fear aquifers. Ground-water withdrawals from these aquifers have increased from about million gallons per day in to over 29 million gallons per day incausing water-level declines.

This data set represents the extent of the Lower Cretaceous aquifers in the states of Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota.

OCCURRENCE, AVAILABILITY, AND CHEMICAL QUALITY OF GROUND WATER IN TH E CRETACEOUS AQUIFERS OF NORTH-CENTRAL TEXAS SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS The study area consists of approximately 15, square miles (40, km 2) and lies within the Red, Sulphur, Sabine, Trinity, and Brazos River basins.

The region includes all or parts of Collin, Cooke, Dallas. If too much ground water is pumped near the coast, salt-water may intrude into freshwater aquifers causing contamination of potable freshwater supplies. Many coastal aquifers, such as the Biscayne Aquifer near Miami and the New Jersey Coastal Plain aquifer, have problems with saltwater intrusion as a result of overpumping and sea level rise.

Water Quality Sampling Sites - The Santee River Basin and coastal drainages (the "Santee Basin") is an approximately 24,square-mile area in North and South Carolina that encompasses the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Piedmont, and the Coastal Plain (Fenneman, ). Most of the million people in the Santee Basin live in urban areas.

water quality can occur, and the damage may be long lasting, if not irreversible. As treatment technology has evolved, water suppliers seem to have developed the management philosophy that over-pumping of aquifers, and the resulting degradation of water quality in coastal aquifers, are acceptable.
