Summary

An investigation was done by the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the California State Water Resources Control Board's Program of Regional Groundwater Monitoring of Water Quality in Areas of Oil and Gas Production, to assess the effects of oil and gas production activities on nearby groundwater resources. During November 2016–September 2017, 30 samples were collected at groundwater wells and 1 sample was collected at a surface-water site. This dataset contains site information and water chemistry results for samples collected near the Lost Hills and North and South Belridge oil fields, Kern County, California. Samples were analyzed for water-quality indicators, major and minor ions, nutrients, trace elements, volatile organic [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data release is to provide the dataset of groundwater and surface-water quality results that were used in the interpretive analysis of the effects of oil and gas production activities in the Lost Hills and Belridge oil fields on nearby groundwater that are protected for beneficial uses and to identify potential pathways of fluid migration.
