Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey collected groundwater samples from 49 wells used for domestic and small system drinking water supplies in Amador, Placer, Sutter, and Sacramento Counties, California in 2017. The wells were sampled for the Sacramento Metropolitan (SacMetro) Shallow Aquifer Study Unit of the California State Water Resources Control Board Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program Priority Basin Project’s assessment of the quality of groundwater resources used for domestic and small system drinking water supplies. Domestic and small-system wells are commonly screened at shallower depths than public-supply wells. The SacMetro study unit consisted of three “study areas” corresponding to three California Department [...]

Purpose

This Data Release presents the data collected for the Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment Program Priority Basin Project SacMetro Shallow Aquifer Study Unit in 2017. These data include: study unit and grid cell boundaries, site information for the 49 grid wells, water-quality results for samples collected from the 49 grid wells, select water-quality results for samples collected from 22 NAWQA monitoring wells, and water-quality results for quality-control samples collected from 11 grid well sites. Subsequent publications will present analysis and interpretation of these data. This document provides information necessary to interpret the results presented in 12 tables provided in this data release.
