In order to properly evaluate a water body, you must first determine the source. Stable isotopic values for water can be used to understand the formation of precipitation — the ultimate source of water. Aquifer, spring and glacial waters all have different chemical values.
In moderation, nutrients are important to ecosystem health. Understanding the role, concentration and source of nutrients in the environment can help enhance water quality. By identifying failing infrastructures and sourcing contaminants, these measurements can help keep Best Management Practices in place.
In most places your drinking water is just below your feet. An understanding of the source and age of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) found naturally in groundwater can give insight into well health and water recharge.
