Abstract

Practically all streams show a progressive increase in dissolved solids concentration from the headwaters to the mouth. Much of the increase is due to water coming in contact with natural, calcareous, or gypsiferous soils and dissolving large quantities of this material, thus increasing the hardness of the water.
