EFFECTS OF LAND USE ON GROUND-WATER QUALITY IN THE EAST EVERGLADES, DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA By Bradley G. Waller ABSTRACT Ground-water quality characteristics of the Biscayne aquifer from September through June were determined for seven land-use areas within the East Everglades in Dade County, :// Groundwater quality characteristics of the Biscayne aquifer from September through June were determined for seven land use areas within the East Everglades in Dade County, Florida.

Four agricultural areas, two low-density residential areas, and Chekika Hammock State Park were investigated.

The effects of land use on the groundwater were minimal in all areas; only iron, which Get this from a library. Effects of land use on ground-water quality in the East Everglades, Dade County, Florida.
