This dataset contains data on water samples collected from 9 private wells in Cache Valley. All of the samples were taken in May and June of 2015. The sampled wells were either under pressure and required only a release of lever/knob for water to flow, or had a pump that brought water to the surface. The depth of wells varied from 50 feet to 300+ feet. Sample locations were limited to the areas within or directly surrounding Logan, Mendon, Clarkston, and Smithfield. The water samples were analyzed for pH, DO, As (III), As (V), Fe (II), Sulfide, Anions, Total Metals, and Organic Carbon.

Resource Level Coverage
|Observed Variables||pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, alkalinity, arsenic|
|Variable Description||Various groundwater quality parameters|
|Data Processing Method||Anions were analyzed using ion chromatography. Total metals and As (III) were analyzed using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Organic carbon was analyzed with carbon analyzer.|
|Data Collection Method||Samples obtained from private wells, the majority of which are used for drinking or irrigating, or otherwise are not currently in use. Parameters of pH, temperature, DO, and EC were measured using handheld instruments. Sulfide and Fe (II) were measured using Hach spectrophotometer. Remainder of parameters were analyzed in the UWRL Environmental Quality Lab. Samples to be analyzed for total metals, As (III), and organic carbon were preserved with appropriate acid.|
