An evaluation of ground-water problems has been carried out in six states in the northwest: Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. There is a need for baseline water quality data and systematic evaluation of overall ground-water conditions, especially in urban zones, in areas of petroleum exploration and development, and at locations of mining and industrial activity. The most common natural ground-water quality problems, other than high salinity, are excessive hardness, iron, maganese, and fluoride. Principal sources of man-caused ground-water quality problems in the approximate order of severity are: discharge of effluent from septic tanks and sewage treatment plants, irrigation return flow, dryland farming, abandoned oil wells, shallow disposal wells, unlined surface impoundments, mine tailings and mine drainage, municipal and industrial landfills, and radioactive waste disposal. Other sources that appear to be of less importance but still must be considered include: spills and leaks, application of fertilizers and pesticides, feedlots, and salt-water intrusion.
