National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program - South Platte River Basin

Groundwater Quality in the Denver Metropolitan Area


Two groundwater studies were conducted in South Platte alluvial aquifer (groundwater adjacent to the stream) in the Denver Metropolitan area: 1) a large-scale study of the effects of urban land use on groundwater quality, and 2) a small-scale study nested within the land use study on the transport of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the alluvial aquifer to the South Platte River.
