Upper Floridan: City of Brunswick

Water levels in nine wells were used to define groundwater conditions in the Upper Floridan aquifer near the city of Brunswick in the central coastal area of Georgia. In this area, water in the Upper Floridan aquifer is confined, and groundwater flow paths are influenced primarily by pumping for industrial and public supply (Cherry and others, 2011).
