Aquifer vulnerability

Published August 20, 2008 - Ocala.com
The aquifer is an underground layer of water mixed with permeable rock, silt or sand. It's from the aquifer that we draw groundwater for drinking and other household uses.

The map also shows something of how the aquifer and local rivers and springs are connected, Mowry said, citing Silver Springs and the Ocklawaha River.

That means when pollutants enter vulnerable areas of the aquifer, those substances could find their way into springs and rivers.
