Table 1. Radionuclide concentrations and gross radioactivity measurements, and associated estimated standard deviations after purging 1 and 3 borehole volumes of water from selected wells during 2004 and 2005, with statistical comparisons of analytical results, Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho.

[See figures 1 and 2 for location of wells. Analytical results and estimated standard deviations are in picocuries per liter. Shading indicates not statistically comparable at the 95-percent confidence level. Z-value, calculated using equation 1 (a Z-value less than or equal to 1.96 indicates statistical equivalence at the 95-percent confidence level). Abbreviations: BHV, borehole volume; CFA, Central Facilities Area; NA, not applicable; NS, not sampled; Repl., replicate sample; SD, estimated standard deviation reported as 1 sigma; USGS, U.S. Geological Survey]
