Water quality data from the Goose Lake Study Site Eastern Montana 1989-2018

August 13, 2019

The data set contains temporal chloride concentrations (mg/L) and specific conductance (uS/cm) values for 32 wetlands and groundwater monitoring wells as well as the date(s) sampled and the laboratory where the water quality analyses were conducted. The ratio of chloride concentration to specific conductance is referred to as the Contamination Index. In this region, values greater than 0.035 are used to identify water quality samples that are contaminated with co-produced water from energy development.
