Summary

As part of the California State Water Resources Control Board’s Regional Groundwater Monitoring Program of Water Quality in Areas of Oil and Gas Production, during September 2016–February 2017, the U.S. Geological Survey collected and analyzed groundwater and associated quality-control (QC) samples from 14 water-production wells located within a three mile buffer zone of and in the Fruitvale Oil field, Kern County, California. Samples were analyzed for water-quality indicators, major and minor ions, nutrients, trace elements, volatile organic compounds, naturally occurring radioactive material, geochemical and age-dating tracers, dissolved organic carbon, low molecular weight organic acids, dissolved standard and hydrocarbon gases, [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data release is to provide groundwater-quality data that were collected to be used in analysis of the potential effects of oil and gas production activities in the Fruitvale oil field on nearby groundwater that is protected for beneficial uses and to identify potential pathways of fluid migration.
