Manitou Springs Water Chemistry Graphical Analysis Assignment (150 pts)

Next to investigating water samples from the Manitou Springs mineral waters wells, you will need to do analytical work for SO4 and HCO3, as well as electric conductivity and pH. A spreadsheet of major pertinent cations and anion concentrations in mg/L, mmol, meq. needs to be prepared and cation-anion balance calculations performed. Then the following interpretive graphs from the data need to be prepared, presented, and analyzed.
