National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program - High Plains Regional Groundwater (HPGW) Study

Urban Land-Use Study - Arkansas R. alluvial deposits, Wichita, Kansas, central High Plains

Water samples from 30 randomly selected monitoring wells completed in the Arkansas River alluvium in Wichita, Kansas in the central High Plains area.

  • The samples were analyzed for about 170 water-quality constituents, including:
    • chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)
    • physical properties
    • dissolved solids and major ions
    • nutrients and dissolved organic carbon
    • trace elements
    • pesticide compounds
    • volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • The purpose of this study was to provide an assessment of water quality in recharge to shallow groundwater underlying areas of recent residential and commercial development, Wichita, Kansas, and to relate, to the extent possible, ground-water quality to overlying land use.
