Puzzle Directions: Click on a puzzle piece and drag it where you want it. When you connect two pieces correctly, they will join together. This is an extra hard double-sided puzzle. The same map is printed on both sides the pieces. Some of the pieces are turned over to the wrong side. To flip a piece over, hold down the "T" key and click on the puzzle piece. Mix up the pieces again. View finished map in pop-up window.
Title: Chloride Content and Land Surface Altitude Projection: Unknown Source Bounding Coordinates: W: -81.5 E: -81 N: 28.5 S: 28
Description: This map shows the relationship of the chloride content of artesian water to the land surface altitude in Seminole County, current to 1962. "Chloride (Cl) is abundant in sea water and is dissolved in small quantities from rocks. The chloride content of ground water is generally a reliable index of contamination by sea water because about 91 percent of the dissolved solids content of sea water consists of chloride salts. The U. S. Public Health Service (1946) recommends that the concentration of chlorides no exceed 250 ppm in water on carriers subject to Federal quarantine regulations." — Jack T. Barraclough, U. S. Geological Survey, 1962 As one could tell by looking at this map, the crosshatch area shows where land surface lower than 30 feet above sea level meets the area in which there is a chloride content of more than 250 ppm (parts per million).
