Abstract : The objective of the spring program was to determine if there are significant seasonal variations in trace element concentrations in the soil, water, and plant samples. A significant seasonal variation was observed for conductivities in both surface and ground water. An increase in As in ground water was observed in the spring and DIMP concentrations are time dependent. The concentrations of Hg, Cl, and Ca in soils decreased in the spring. No significant seasonal effect was observed for Mg and SO4. Cu concentrations increased in cottonwood twigs in the spring. This document consists of two parts: part 1 text, and reduced copies of 10 maps. Part 2 includes 11 full size maps. (AN)
