Abstract:

Water-quality samples for analysis of selected trace inorganic constituents and synthetic organic compounds were collected from 29 private or observation wells in the alluvium and fluvial deposits of Quaternary and Tertiary age. The alluvium and fluvial deposits are the water-table aquifers in the Memphis area. In addition, nine wells were installed in Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division well fields so that samples could be collected and analyzed to characterize the quality of water in the fluvial deposits at these well fields. Samples from seven of these wells two were dry were analyzed for major constituents and properties of water as well as for selected trace inorganic constituents and synthetic organic compounds.
