APPENDIX C


PROPOSED SALT WATER EVALUATION FACTORS
JUNE 15, 1993








Salt Water Intrusion
Evaluation Factors


1. Reversal of vertical and/or horizontal directions of
regional ground water flow

2. Vertical or lateral movement of the fresh/saltwater
interface

3. Potentiometric surface elevations at or below mean sea level
in the Floridan aquifer

4. Change in spatial distribution of chloride concentrations as
follows:

a. Water less than 250 mg/l
b. Water less than 1200 mg/l
c. Water less than 5000 mg/l

Note: These ranges are based on 250 mg/l as the EPA
recommended public drinking water standard, 120C
mg/l as the upper limit for agricultural
irrigation and 5000 mg/l as the upper limit for
cost-effective treatment of water for public
supply using reverse osmosis.

5. Change in chloride concentrations of water discharged
through springs or through upward discharge to the surficial
aquifer system such that unacceptable impacts to natural
systems would occur

6. Degradation of ground water quality to the extent that the
cost of treatment is not economically feasible and/or
unacceptable impacts to natural systems would occur
