Abstract:
A hydrogeochemical study of groundwater in fractured granite near Oracle, Arizona indicated the water attained its chemical properties as it entered the groundwater flow system near the mountains. Interpretation of chemical analyses of water samples taken from both sides of a major fault suggests that distinct flow subsystems exist on each side of the fault and that little or no flow occurs across the strike of the fault. Limited environmental isotope data are consistent with interpretations based on chemical data. Isocons of sodium, chloride, and bromide ions approximately follow groundwater flowlines defined by mapping water table contours.
