Map of Study Location
Determine the quality of shallow groundwater underlying
wheat crop areas.
Install and collect samples from 30 wells
randomly located in wheat crop areas east of Denver.
Site selection and well installation occurred
in 2003. Sampling for targeted physical and chemical data occurred
in Summer 2003.
- Targeted Physical and Chemical Data:
Physical parameters, nutrients, pesticides,
organic carbon, trace elements,
major ions, groundwater age.
