In west Texas, water is extremely important. The following data represent pH levels in groundwater for a random sample of 102 west Texas wells, A pH less than 7 is acidic and a pH above 7 is alkaline. Scanning the data, you can see that water in this region tends to be hard (alkaline). Too high a pH means the water is unusable or needs expensive treatment to make it usable (Reference: C. E. Nichols and V. E. Kane. Union Carbide Technical Report K/UR-1). x: pH of Ground Water in 102 West Texas Wells 7.0 7.0 7.0 7.0 7.0 7.0 7.0 7.0 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.1 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.2 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.3 7.4 7.4 7.4 7.4 7.4 7.4 7.4 7.4 7.4 7.5 7.5 15 7.5 7.5 7.5 7.5 15 7.6 7.6 7.6 7.6 7.6 7.6 7.6 7.6 7.6 7.7 7.7 7.7 7.7 7.7 7.7 7.8 7.8 7.8 7.8 7.8 7.9 7.9 7.9 7.9 7.9 8.0 8.1 8.1 8.1 8.1 8.1 8.1 8.1 8.2 8.2 8.2 8.2 8.2 8.2 8.2 8.4 8.5 8.6 8.7 8.8 8.8 These data are also available for download at the Companion Sites for this text.
