Abstract:
A study is presented of the occurrence of boron in the ground water of an area in the southeastern San Joaquin Valley. Geologic and hydrologic factors affecting the distribution of boron are established. The area selected for study lies wholly within the Arvin-Edison Water Storage District of Kern County, California. Four sets of boron data and water-level data are compared, results indicating conditions from 1929 to 1966. The effect of ground-water movement on boron occurrence is discussed. The subsurface lithology of the study area is defined through the use of electric logs and other data. The foothill area northeast of the study area is related to the occurrence of boron in the ground water of the study area. A model is constructed to describe the present distribution of boron in the ground water of the study area. The dilution effect of Caliente Creek recharge is important with regard to boron concentrations in the ground water. The effect of subsurface lithology and processes such as sorption on boron content are discussed. Chemical analyses from 1966 are used to substantiate concepts developed in this report.
