Abstract

Water quality in Barton Springs and is associated outlets, Eliza, Old Mill and Upper Barton Springs, declines as flows decline. In addition, storm water impacts as indicated by specific conductance increase as spring flows decrease. During droughts, declining water quality is due to greater percentages of saline water mixing with "normal" Edwards Aquifer waters. Regression formulas allow for predictions of concentrations of specific conductance, nitrate, chloride, sulfate, and sodium that might be expected during severe droughts.
