Summary

This data set includes results for hormone and pharmaceutical compounds analyzed in environmental and quality-control samples collected by the USGS National Water-Quality Assessment Project during 2013 through 2015 for a study of groundwater resources used for drinking-water supply across the United States. Hormone and pharmaceutical results are provided for environmental samples collected at 1,120 wells or springs; selected ancillary data, such as principal aquifer, well depth, and land-use information also are provided for the sampled sites. The types of quality-control samples included in this data set are blanks, matrix spikes, and replicates collected at field sites or field offices. Included in this data release are the following [...]

Purpose

The data were collected by the USGS National Water-Quality Assessment Project to (1) determine how often hormones and pharmaceuticals occur in the groundwater used as a source of drinking water across the United States, (2) examine the potential relevance of detected concentrations to human health, and (3) identify some of the factors that contribute to occurrence in groundwater.
