Water Quality in the Aravaipa Canyon Basin

Sites with parameter concentrations that have equaled or exceeded drinking water standard(s) (DWS), including location and parameter(s) are shown in Table 3.1-4A.  There are no data on impaired lakes and streams in this basin.  Figure 3.1-9 shows the location of water quality exceedences keyed to Table 3.1-4A.  A description of water quality data sources and methods is found in Volume 1, Appendix A.  Not all parameters were measured at all sites; selective sampling for particular constituents is common. 

Well, Mine or Spring sites that have equaled or exceeded drinking water standards (DWS)

  • Refer to Table 3.1-4A.
  • Eight measured wells have parameter concentrations that have equaled or exceeded drinking water standards.
  • The parameter most frequently equaled or exceeded in the sites measured was arsenic.  Other parameters equaled or exceeded included nitrates, beryllium, cadmium, copper, lead and fluoride.
