Title: Powder Wash Field, Colorado, Water Analysis: ERRATUM

Author(s): W. T. Nightingale (2)



Owing to some unexplainable error in transcription from the original manuscript parts of two different water analyses were copied as one and the CO3 radical was left out. The correct analysis for the water recovered from the 5,218-foot level at Powder Wash is as follows.

I am also in agreement with Mr. Case's explanation of the OH radical in the analysis under consideration. Cement contamination is the reasonable explanation with regard to the chemical peculiarities of this water sample which was secured by bailer after the casing had been set and cemented on the sand. The surprising feature is the persistency of cement contamination in the water even after several days of bailing from the sand.
