Description Twenty-seven wells were sampled near Ellensburg, Washington for pesticides and nitrate+nitrite as N. Water temperature, pH, and specific conductance were also measured in the field. Wells were located in the surficial aquifer that underlies the Kittitas Valley. This water-table aquifer is shallow, with a depth to water ranging from as little as two feet to about 20 feet.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
