Abstract

This report summarizes the results of the fiscal year 2019 (FY19) groundwater monitoring effort. Ambient groundwater quality monitoring in FY19 was focused on evaluating spatial and temporal variations in water quality by monitoring of untreated groundwater from public water supply wells with an emphasis on wells susceptible to surface contamination, using isotopic ratios of nitrogen and oxygen to better understand sources of nitrate in groundwater, and establishing baseline water quality for six unpumped monitoring wells in the Silurian-Devonian aquifer constructed by the Iowa Geological Survey and historically used for water level monitoring. Detailed analyses of nitrate and manganese data are included.
