This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release contains push-pull test results, Darcy velocity data, and contaminant mass flux data measured in Albuquerque, New Mexico, using passive flux meters (PFMs) in monitoring and sentinel wells associated with the Kirtland Air Force Base (KAFB) Bulk Fuels Facility (BFF). Push-pull test results were used to correct Darcy velocity data collected at large depth PFM deployments in sentinel wells. The dataset from monitoring wells associated with the BFF ethylene dibromide and benzene plumes includes Darcy flux and contaminant mass flux results while the dataset from sentinel wells upgradient from public-supply wells contains only Darcy flux results. The measurements were conducted by the USGS in cooperation with KAFB, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, EA Engineering, Science and Technology, Inc. (an engineering consulting firm), and the University of Florida.
This is a revision to address discrepancies. UF confirmed that some result values in the revised data were incorrect and provided corrected data. Futhermore, the sample end date for passive flux meters deployed on May 30, 2019 at well 350307106344101 (10N.03E.36.233 KAFB-106S7) was corrected in the data release.
