1. One milligram per liter is equivalent to 8.33 pounds of substance per million gallons of water.

2. Analyses with asterisk after well number are by State Geological Survey of Kansas. All other analyses are by Kansas State Department of Health.

3. Ls, Limestone; Sh, Shale; Ss, Sandstone; Fm, Formation.

4. In areas where the nitrate content of water is known to exceed 45 mg/l, the public should be warned of the potential dangers of using the water for infant feeding (U.S. Public Health Service, 1962, p. 7).
