Comparison of natural and anthropogenic compounds in various geologic terranes (geologic belts) within the Piedmont aquifers

The purpose of this study is to improve the understanding of the variability of water quality within different geologic belts, or terranes, in the Piedmont specifically with respect to naturally occurring contaminants. Four terranes were selected for study. These include the Charlotte-Raleigh Belt, the Slate Belt, the Milton Belt, and areas of felsic intrusive and granite rock.
