Mapping Groundwater Quality and Chemistry Adjacent to Great Salt Lake, Utah (OFR-699)

Ground Water

By: Stefan M. Kirby, Paul C. Inkenbrandt, and Andrew Rupke

This report details the data compilation and database construction of groundwater chemistry adjoining Great Salt Lake and its wetlands. The database includes publicly available major solute, trace constituent, nutrient, and isotopic data available near Great Salt Lake. The database also includes new samples collected as part of this project. A select subset of the highest quality data was used to interpolate total dissolved solids in groundwater surrounding Great Salt Lake as well as create maps that depict various aspects of geochemistry in groundwater adjoining the Great Salt Lake. Available state-level wetland type mapping and wetland fluid geochemistry are also included in the database. This chemistry database is a first step towards understanding and better constraining the role of groundwater in various Great Salt Lake processes and habitats and provides important baseline chemistry.
