MEMORANDUM


TO: Rodney N. Cherry, Director, Water Resources Division

FROM: Wendall B. Smith, Chief, Hydrology Department

RE: Current Status of District Order 72-4 for Month of October, 1973


The subject order deals with the regulation of Pinellas County's Eldridge-
Wilde Well Field and is directed toward establishing sufficient data col-
lection and testing to enable proper management of that Well Field.

The following is a summary of each by item required by Order 72-4.

Item 1.
Plans and specifications for five salinity outpost monitor wells
have been accepted and approved June 14, 1973.

Item 2.
a. The subject well has been completed to a depth of 1,100 feet with
760 feet of this depth cased. Chlorides at depth were 38 mg per
liter and total dissolved solids were 890 mg per liter. The well
has been logged and meets the provisions of the order.

b. Of these western salinity monitor wells, the shallower was com-
pleted to a depth of 350 feet with 241 feet of this depth cased.
Chlorides were 17 mg per liter and the total dissolved solids
were 190 mg per liter. The deeper well has encountered unusual
drilling difficulties at 310 feet and is causing serious delay in
the time of completion.

c. The subject rain gage was placed in operation March 12, 1973.

d. The subject wells have been constructed and are being monitored.

e. Of these southwestern salinity monitor wells, the shallower was com-
pleted to a depth of 350 feet with 100 feet of this depth cased.
Chlorides and the total dissolved solids were very similar to those
in item 2b. above; however, laboratory results have not been re-
ceived. The deeper of the two wells, currently at a depth of 520
feet, has been cased to 500 feet and is being drilled out to 750
feet.

Item 3.
This testing will begin early in November with completion of testing
and analysis anticipated by mid January.
