Ambient Groundwater Monitoring Adjacent to SRS


Image of a person collecting groundwater samples completing paperwork during sampling Groundwater quality around SRS is evaluated to develop background water quality information to support SCDHEC and SRS groundwater monitoring programs. ESOP defined a network of 75 wells, within 10-miles of the SRS boundary, consisting of public supply wells, private wells, irrigation wells and monitoring wells. Samples are collected on a five-year cycle, and analyzed for total and dissolved water quality parameters, some priority pollutants and selected radiological constituents. Water quality data from this project enhances current water quality data and provides assurance to the public that off-site groundwater quality is not impacted by SRS.
