      Since January 2004, and possibly as early as 2001, naturally-occurring saltwater has contaminated wells in the Savannah/Vernonburg, Georgia, area (Fig. 1, Hall and Carter, 2004; Hall and Peck, 2005). During April 2004, the ...
    • Saltwater Contamination of Ground Water at Brunswick, Georgia and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina 

      Krause, Richard E.; Clarke, John S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, 2001-03)
      Sustained pumping from the Upper Floridan aquifer in the coastal area of Georgia and adjacent lowcountry of South Carolina has resulted in substantial reductions in artesian pressure in the aquifer, which has resulted ...
    • Saltwater Intrusion in the Floridan Aquifer System, Northeastern Florida 

      Spechler, Rick M.; Phelps, G. G. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, 1997-03)
      Saltwater intrusion is a potential threat to the quality of ground water in northeastern Florida and southeastern Georgia. Elevated chloride concentrations have been observed in wells tapping the Upper Floridan and the ...
    • Saltwater intrusion modeling of the Savannah harbor expansion project 

      Maimone, Mark; Hossain, R. Paul (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, The University of Georgia, 2005-04)
      The Army Corp of Engineers (ACOE) hired CDM to develop a 3-dimensional ground water model of the Savannah harbor area, with the intent to use the model to simulate saltwater intrusion from the Savannah River harbor area, ...
    • Saturated hydraulic conductivity estimates of soils for three sites in the Georgia Southern Piedmont 

      Abreu, María Eugenia; West, Larry T. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, The University of Georgia, 2005-04)
      For soils in the Southern Piedmont, clayey upper Bt horizons have typically been estimated to have low saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ks) relative to underlying less clayey horizons. However, data from a few sites suggest ...
