Summary

The availability of groundwater-quality data for relatively deep wells (wells generally more than 300 feet deep) containing saline water (dissolved-solids concentrations greater than 2,000 milligrams per liter) is limited throughout the state of Texas. Water-quality samples are important for calibrating estimates of groundwater salinity derived from geophysical well logs. Water-quality data collected in 2021 from four wells completed in selected aquifers (Trinity, Carrizo-Wilcox, and Yegua-Jackson) in Texas are included in this data release.

Purpose

This dataset documents the results of water-quality samples collected from four of the 12 total wells for the study in Texas. Water-quality samples were analyzed for physical properties as well as dissolved concentrations of calcium, chloride, fluoride, magnesium, nitrate, nitrite, potassium, silica, sodium, sulfate, and total dissolved solids.
