Summary

The Transboundary Aquifer Assessment Act was established to systematically assess priority aquifers along the U.S.-Mexico international boundary. The priority aquifers that were specified include the Hueco-Mesilla Bolsons aquifer in Texas and New Mexico and its counterpart in Mexico, the Conejos-Medanos Aquifer system, and the Santa Cruz and San Pedro aquifers in Arizona (Texas Water Development Board, 2019). The Transboundary Aquifer Assessment Program (TAAP) was started in 2009 and is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey, Arizona Water Resources Research Center, New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute, and the Texas Water Resources Institute (U.S. Geological Survey, 2018) to better understand these aquifers.

Purpose

The dataset documents water-quality data obtained from 23 groundwater wells within the Hueco Bolson. This dataset helps meet TAAP goals by providing groundwater quality data that can be helpful for water-resource managers near El Paso, Texas. The dataset includes the results of quality-control samples that were collected in conjunction with the groundwater samples.
