More than 60,000 saline water analyses were collected by the U.S. Bureau of Mines for entry into an automatic data processing system. Screening of the data eliminated 30,000 analyses; 20,000 were entered into STORET, the data processing system formulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. The water analyses are used in studies related to identifying the source of a brine, classification of groundwater for use in geochemistry, plotting local and regional salinity maps, determining sources of pollution of freshwater and land by brines, and studies of the use of saline water for desalination to produce freshwater and valuable minerals. Examples of each of these studies are given. Irresponsible control of brines can seriously pollute freshwater and land. The analyses now in STORET should be wisely used in pollution prevention programs. Additional analyses should be entered into STORET to aid groundwater and land pollution prevention programs. The most important factors are the potentials that exist for using the data in studies related to pollution abatement and exploration for minerals.
