Saltwater Intrusion in the Floridan Aquifer in Walton, Okaloosa and Santa Rosa Counties, Florida: Western Model Domain
This report presents results obtained from the Water Supply Planning Region II western domain saltwater intrusion model. It documents predicted rates of saltwater intrusion presently occurring in the Floridan Aquifer along the coast of Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties. As described by the report, saltwater is moving slowly to the north, in the direction of coastal wells. However, rates of intrusion are sufficiently slow that adequate time will be available to adapt to future water quality changes. Model results are applicable to nine of 13 major public supply systems located along the coast of Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties. These include Holley-Navarre WS, Midway WS, OCWS County West WS, Hurlburt AFB, City of Mary Esther, City of Ft. Walton Beach, OCWS Garnier WS, EAFB Main, and EAFB Housing.
