The report deals with salt-water sources that commonly mix and deteriorate fresh ground water. It reviews characteristics of salt-water sources and geochemical techniques that can be used to identify these sources after mixing has occurred. The report is designed to assist investigators of salt-water problems in a step-by-step fashion. Seven major sources of salt water are distinguished: (1) Natural saline ground water, (2) Halite solution, (3) Sea-water intrusion, (4) Oil-and gas-field brines, (5) Agricultural effluents, (6) Saline seep, and (7) Road salting. The geographic distribution of these sources was mapped individually and together, illustrating which ones are potential sources at any given area in the United States.
