Abstract:The Biscayne Aquifer is a G-2, sole source aquifer, located in Broward and Dade Counties in southeastern Florida. Recharge occurs primarily via rainfall, with some lateral movement from the Everglades and canal systems from Lake Okeechobee 100 miles north. Most of the utilities located in southeast Florida rely on the Biscayne Aquifer System for their raw water supplies since the surficial aquifer is the only freshwater supply in most of the region. Fortunately, it is one of the most a prolific surficial aquifer systems in the world.
