Drinking water at a certain groundwater well is located at the confluence of a north fork and south fork of a major river. Data was collected to determine if the well is under direct influence by surface water. Direct influence and the extent of the correlation was determined by statistically analyzing the well turbidity with surface water flow and temperature variability. The surface water flow and was lagged per period and with a weighted average to determine the highest correlation. Logistic regression models were developed to determine if a predictive model can predict permit conditions based on the data collected.
