Abstract

The ambient groundwater quality monitoring effort in FY18 was designed to assess the occurrence of both natural and anthropogenic contaminants. Groundwater samples collected between October 2017 and March 2018 were analyzed for pH, total dissolved solids, nitrate + nitrite as N, ammonia as N, chloride, bromide, sulfate, iron, manganese, seven neonicotinoid insecticides, gross alpha and beta radioactivity, and five radionuclides from the uranium-238 decay series, including polonium-210 and lead-210. Wells that have contained nitrate in the past were analyzed for nitrogen and oxygen isotopes to help identify sources of nitrate.
