Description Two hundred and forty-eight (248) water-supply wells and two (2) springs were sampled for nitrate and chloride over a ten-week period from February 18 through April 29, 1997. All sampled wells and springs obtained water from the Sumas-Blaine Surficial Aquifer. The results of this project provide a unique spatial view of the spring nitrate+nitrite-N concentrations in the surficial aquifer essentially free of seasonal variation.
