Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey collected groundwater samples from 95 domestic wells in Tulare and Kings Counties, California in 2014-2015. The wells were sampled for the Tulare Shallow Aquifer Study Unit of the California State Water Resources Control Board Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program Priority Basin Project’s assessment of the quality of groundwater resources used for domestic drinking water supply. Domestic wells commonly are screened at shallower depths than are public-supply wells. The Tulare Shallow Aquifer Study Unit includes the Kaweah, Tule, and Tulare Lake subbasins of the San Joaquin Valley groundwater basin and adjacent areas of the Sierra Nevada. The study unit was divided into equal area grid [...]

Purpose

This Data Release presents the data collected for the Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment Program Priority Basin Project Tulare Shallow Aquifer Study Unit in 2014-2015. These data include: study unit and grid cell boundaries, site information for the 95 wells, water-quality results for samples collected from the 95 wells, and water-quality results for quality-control samples collected from 10 sites. Subsequent publications will present analysis and interpretation of these data.
