Groundwater quality classification for the principal basin-fill aquifer, East Shore Area, Davis County, Utah: Open-file Report 592.

Groundwater quality is classified by the Utah Water Quality Board based primarily on the total amount of dissolved solids in the water. The lower the total-dissolved-solids concentration, the higher the water quality. Groundwater-quality classification maps show different classes of water in an underlying aquifer (source of underground water). This information can be used to protect higher quality water through more stringent land-use planning.
