Water- quality, well-construction, and ground-waterleveldatauere collected for an investigation of radionuclides in ground water in Maury and Hic!-cman Counties, Tennessee. Seventeen wells and 3 springs were sampled in Hic!aan County, and 20 wells were sampled in Maury County. Data are presented in tables. Maps. of. Sixty-five wells were installed at 39 sites in the Arnold Air Force Base area in Coffee and Franklin Counties, Tennessee. The wells were installed to provide information on subsurface lithology, aquifer characteristics, ground-water levels, and ground-water quality. Well depths ranged from 11 to feet. Water-quality samples were collected from 60 wells and analyzed for common . Shallow wells draw from the ground water nearest the land surface, which may be directly affected by farmstead activities. Polluted surface water can infiltrate into the soil and quickly affect a shallow well that was not properly constructed or is located in a coarse-textured soil that easily conducts water.
