Summary

Water-quality data for groundwater samples collected by the U.S. Geological Survey from 79 wells in Pike County, Pennsylvania, 1982-2015. Data consist of field properties and results of laboratory analysis for concentrations of inorganic constituents, dissolved gases (methane, ethane and propane), radon-222, gross alpha and beta radioactivity, radium-226, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and methane isotopic composition in groundwater samples. Dataset prepared as part of 2015 study for which 79 wells were sampled and includes comparable results for 18 of the 79 wells that were sampled for previous studies in years 1982, 2007, 2011-13. In 2015, groundwater samples from all 79 wells were analyzed for all constituents except radium-226, [...]
