Ground-Water Chemistry

Ground-water studies focused exclusively on sand and gravel outwash deposits, known as the Buried-Valley Aquifer System, a major source of drinking water aquifer in the study unit. Ground-water studies were designed to measure water-quality in:

  • high-capacity supply wells next to large streams (supply wells);
  • domestic wells screened at various depths in the aquifer (subunit study wells);
  • shallow ground-water in areas overlain by agricultural or urban land use (agricultural and urban land-use wells);
  • shallow parts of the aquifer where induced infiltration can result in transport of certain chemicals from streams to the aquifer;
  • areas undisturbed by human activities (reference wells).
