Title: Well-Field Pumping Effects on Isolated Wetlands

Duration: This Request: September 1997 to August 1998; Project: September 1997 to August 2000

Federal Funds Requested: $34,202

Non-Federal: $68,404

Principal Investigators: William R. Wise, Michael D. Annable, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida Water Resources Research Center.

Congressional District: 5th

Statement of critical regional water problems:

Increasing demographic pressures in the southeastern United State, particularly in Florida, are stressing the water balances in many areas of urbanization and potential urbanization. Problems arise relating both to water-supply and stormwater-quantity/quality issues. The proposed work addresses the former. Specifically, delicate ecological balances in isolated wetlands may be disturbed as well fields in proximate (underlying) aquifers are developed to provide for the increasing demands associated with development of population centers. Destruction of ever-decreasing wildlife habitat and diminishment of the quality of human life in affected regions is possible.
