Jurgens, B.C., Parkhurst, D.L., and Belitz, K., 2019, Data for Assessing the Lead Solubility Potential of Untreated Groundwater of the United States: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Groundwater chemistry data used for assessing the lead (Pb) solubility potential of untreated groundwater of the United States were compiled from the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) database for groundwater sites sampled between January 1, 2000 and January 1, 2016. Two datasets were compiled: one dataset having 13,324 groundwater sites was used to assess Pb occurrence in untreated groundwater from different well types and a second dataset having 8,313 groundwater sites was used for geochemical modeling (Tables S1 and S2). In both datasets, only the most recent sample was used when multiple water-quality samples were available for a site. Samples were collected in accordance with protocols established by the USGS National [...]
