Summary:The basic hydrogeology of Pinellas County, Florida, and results of injection of wastewater at three test sites on the Pinellas Peninsula are presented. The injection sites are underlain by sedimentary rocks ranging from Cretaceous to Pleistocene. Lower Eocene carbonate rocks, penetrated to a maximum depth of 3,504 ft, had relatively low water yields. The most permeable part was in rocks of middle Eocene age within the Floridan Aquifer. The injected water was well mixed with the native formation water, which, in part, is a direct consequence of the fractured nature of the injection zone. The injection tests ranged in duration from 3 to 91.1 days.—From New Publications of the Geological Survey, July 1982.
