Results show effects of industry and agriculture on groundwater quality

Organic solvents were detected at high concentrations in 18% of the aquifer system used for public supply in the San Fernando and San Gabriel basins in California in a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) study. However, this groundwater treated before delivery to customers to ensure compliance with water quality standards.
