Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey collected groundwater samples from 71 domestic wells and 4 springs in Nevada, Yuba, Sierra, and Placer Counties, California in 2015-2016. The sites were sampled for the Yuba and Bear Watersheds 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 drinking water supply. Domestic wells commonly are screened at shallower depths than are public-supply wells. The Yuba and Bear Watersheds Shallow Aquifer Study Unit includes the hard rock systems of the eastern Sierra Nevada in the Upper Yuba and Upper Bear watersheds. The study unit [...]

Purpose

This Data Release presents the data collected for the Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment Program Priority Basin Project Yuba and Bear Watersheds Shallow Aquifer Study Unit in 2015-2016. These data include: study unit and grid cell boundaries, site information for the 71 wells and 4 springs, water-quality results for samples collected from these 75 sites, and water-quality results for quality-control samples collected from 26 sites. Subsequent publications will present analysis and interpretation of these data.
