Table 4. Tritium and strontium-90 concentrations, and associated estimated standard deviations after purging 1, 2, and 3 borehole volumes of water from selected wells during 1991, 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. Sample pairs from Bartholomay (1993, table 3); Abbreviations: BHV, borehole volume; SD, estimated standard deviation reported as 1-sigma; USGS, U.S. Geological Survey; Z, 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)]
