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 City of Vernonburg implemented a program to monitor specific conductance in 12 contaminated wells. The purpose of this paper is to map the areal extent of high specific conductance in the Upper Floridan aquifer beneath the Vernonburg area during 2006 and to delineate specific conductance trends from February 2004 to September 2006.
