Abstract:
Results of chemical analyses revealed elevated levels of organic surrogate parameters which included dissolved organic carbon, trihalomethanes, total organic halides, and UV absorbance in Tucson groundwater impacted by artificial recharge activity. Inorganic parameters associated with recharge water were also elevated in Tucson groundwater impacted by artificial recharge. The mobility of organochlorine during deep well injection of chlorinated Colorado River Water into the Las Vegas Valley aquifer was also investigated. The Las Vegas Valley aquifer was found to have little sorptive capacity for organo-chlorine.
