(requires an Internet connection)
Reconnaissance sampling of groundwater from residential wells was carried out in the Fredericton area, New Brunswick in the summer of 1992. Detailed surveys were carried out in July and August of 1993 and 1994. Follow-up work was completed in the summer of 1995. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3306.
Paper report with data lists.
SO4, Cl, F, Total N, Br by ion chromatography; As, Sb by hydride-generation AAS; 20 elements by a combination of ICP-ES and ICP-MS.
Geochem Maps Available:
Contour maps showing the distribution of elements in groundwater.
Alkalinity by titration; pH and conductivity measured on site with portable meters.
After running the kitchen tap for 2-3 minutes, two 250 ml samples were collected in polyethylene bottles. One sample was acidified with 0.5 ml concentrated nitric acid. The samples were not filtered. They were refrigerated at 4°C until analyses were completed.
