DGS96-3 Ambient Ground-Water Quality of the New Jersey Part of the Newark Basin (27KB)


The sets of files within this directory summarize natural ground-water quality in sedimentary bedrock formations of the Newark basin part of the Piedmont Physiographic province of New Jersey. This information will provide all interested parties with natural water chemistry and ranges of many water-quality parameters. Uses for this data include: (1) Establishing baselines for assessing potential ground-water pollution, (2) Assisting local governments, water companies, drillers and private well owners in recognizing the potential for natural water-quality problems, and (3) Assessing the presence and concentration of water-quality constituents that affect industrial processes. The data consist of one ARC/INFO Geographic Information Systems (GIS) coverage showing well locations and numbers (id's), and a set of dBASE III relational database files containing chemical parameters, values, and well attributes. The sample analyses and associated well information presented here are from the 1987-88 N.J. Dept. of Environmental Protection and U.S. Geological Survey cooperative Ambient Ground Water Quality Network, and the 1985-87 U.S. Geological Survey and N.J. Department of Environmental Protection study of radionuclides in ground water

This map shows the location of wells used to characterize natural ground-water quality in the New Jersey part of the Mesozoic Newark basin. Wells include those from the Ambient Ground Water Quality Network and a study focusing on radionuclides in ground water. The data include attribute tables for the well locations and chemical parameters sampled for each well.
