Major-ion chemistry, strontium isotope ratios (87Sr/86Sr), stable isotope ratios (δ18O, δ2H), and tritium were analyzed for water samples from the southern Bear Lake Valley, Utah and Idaho, to characterize the types and distribution of groundwater sources and their relation to Bear Lake’s pre-diversion chemistry. Four ground-water types were identified: (1) Ca-Mg-HCO3 water with 87Sr/86Sr values of ~0.71050 and modern tritium concentrations was found in the mountainous carbonate terrain of the Bear River Range. Magnesium (Mg) and bicarbonate (HCO3) concentrations at Swan Creek Spring are discharge dependent...
