Potential for updip movement of salinewater in the Edwards Aquifer, San Antonio, Texas The salinity front, locally known as the "bad-water" line, in the Edwards aquifer separates the freshwater from the salinewater and occurs where the aquifer is confined.

POTENTIAL FOR UPDIP MOVEMENT OF SALINEWATER IN THE EDWARDS AQUIFER, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS By Roberto Perez ABSTRACT The salinity front, locally known as the "bad-water" line, in the Edwards aquifer separates the freshwater from the salinewater and occurs where the aquifer is by: 5.

Simulated transmissivity values for the Edwards aquifer within the salinewater zone ranged from to 3, feet squared per day and resulted in potential lateral shifts of the salinity front from 16 to feet updip into the freshwater zone at the end of a year simulation.

state of Texas, it is the source of drinking water for two million people, and is the primary water supply for agriculture and industry in the aquifer's addition, the Edwards Aquifer feeds the Comal and San Marcos springs, provides springflow.

The Edwards (Balcones Fault Zone) Aquifer in the San Antonio, Texas, area was the first to be designated a sole source aquifer by the Environmental Protection Agency in The Edwards Aquifer also hosts unique groundwater, cave, and spring ecosystems. The Edwards aquifer supplies drinking water for more than 1 million people in south-central Texas.

The saline-water zone of the Edwards aquifer extends from the downdip limit of freshwater to the southern and eastern edge of the Stuart City Formation. Water samples from 16 wells in the Edwards aquifer saline-water zone were collected during July–September and analyzed for major and.

Many researchers have studied the downdip limit of freshwater in the Edwards aquifer or various aspects of the saline-water zone and its relation to the freshwater zone. These studies were summarized and used to synthesize a consistent hydrologic and geochemical framework from which to interpret data from field studies.

The concept derived from the previous work on the downdip limit of the. The importance of the Edwards aquifer as a freshwater resource and its susceptibility to being contaminated, being over utilized, or both resulted in the development of a proposed year plan to monitor and study its hydrology.

The plan proposes adjustments to the current monitoring activities of computing and measuring recharge, discharge, withdrawals, water levels, and water quality. potential for updip movement of salinewater in the edwards aquifer, san antonio, texas: usgs water-resources investigations report 86–, carbonate geology and hydrology of the edwards aquifer in the san antonio area, texas: texas water development board report carbonate geology and hydrology of the edwards aquifer in the san antonio area, texas: texas water development board reportpotential for updip movement of salinewater in the edwards aquifer, san antonio, texas: usgs water-resources investigations report 86–.

This freshwater zone is bounded to the south and southeast by a saline-water zone with an intermediate zone transitioning from freshwater to saline water, the transition zone.
