Abstract

In February 1992, the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) joined representatives of the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority (CRMWA) and Lee Wilson & Associates (LWA) in conducting a survey of water quality along the Canadian River between Ute Reservoir, New Mexico, and Lake Meredith, Texas (fig. 1). This report describes evaporite dissolution patterns in Permian salt-bearing strata in the Ute Reservoir area, discusses conductivity and flow trends observed during the river survey, and concludes with a discussion of chemical analyses of waters sampled from the Canadian River, its tributaries, and adjacent pools and seeps.
