This report shows the results of the September 1972 nitrate sampling program for Poplar Creek sampled near Building 9720-5 storm sewer outfall and upper Bear Creek Valley 0.3 mile below the S-3 disposal ponds in Tables I and II. A few soluble uranium analyses for Bear Creek and Poplar Creek are included. A summary by months of the total nitrates at the two sampling locations is presented in Table III. S-3 acid disposal pond water elevations from August 1971 to October 1972 are given in Table IV. Table V lists the nitrate and soluble uranium profile of Bear Creek following 1.71 inches of rainfall when preceded by dry weather. Table VI shows the uranium isotopic analyses of a soil sample taken from an unsprinkled area adjacent to the hardwood sprinkler site. The chemical analyses of soil samples from the hardwood forest site are listed in Table VII. A figure of the area of upper Bear Creek Valley is also included which shows the location of spray irrigation plots and sampling sites.
