Summary

In cooperation with the San Antonio Water System, continuous and discrete water-quality data were collected from groundwater wells completed in the Edwards aquifer, Texas, 2014-2015. Discrete measurements of nitrate were made by using a nitrate sensor. Precipitation data from two sites in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Global Historical Climatology Network are included in the dataset. The continuous monitoring data were collected using water quality sensors and include hourly measurements of nitrate, specific conductance, and water level in two wells. Discrete measurements of nitrate, specific conductance, and vertical flow rate were collected from one well site at different depths throughout the well bore.

Purpose

Data were collected in order to better understand nitrate dynamics during contrasting periods of drought and wet cycles. Nitrate was monitored continuously in situ at hourly intervals in two groundwater-monitoring wells in order to resolve changes that occur over both short-term (hourly to daily) and long-term (monthly to yearly) periods.
