Table 2 Results of chemical analyses of KA-W and KA-1 water samples (all units in mg/L unless otherwise noted)

From: Effect of an 860-m thick, cold, freshwater aquifer on geothermal potential along the axis of the eastern Snake River Plain, Idaho

Sample T (°C) EC (µS) pH Alkalinity Ca Mg Na K Cl SO4 SiO2
KA-W 15.8 336 7.71 160 25.0 12.7 16.5 3.60 13.1 22.1 60.9
KA-1 28.8 1060 8.17 120 21.1 3.21 284 10.3 315 306 158
  1. Ion balance errors = 5.3% for KA-W and 9.5% for KA-1
