A cross section running northward 14 km from Atlantic Beach on the Long Beach barrier island depicts southwestern Long Island’s four main freshwater aquifers in light blue (Fig. 25). The drawing shows the status in the mid‐twentieth century when overpumping was drawing saltwater into the freshwater aquifers from the south, intruding as three wedges shown in dark gray and advancing northward as rapidly as 100 m year−1 during the 1950s.
