Confined aquifer and potentiometric surface (height water will rise due to hydrostatic pressure).
Groundwater overdraft in Florida. Implications for the survival of the Everglades.
Solution weathering within karst landscapes results in very large conduits with potential high hydraulic conductivity.
Overdraft can cause subsidence and collapse structures in karst aquifers.
Subterrrestrial conduits within karst landscapes facilitate rapid migration of point source contaminents.
Polluted surface waters can enter the groundwater system rapidly in karst landscapes.
