This data set contains stable isotope values of tap water collected in the Salt Lake Valley (SLV) from 2013 to 2016.

The proposed goals for the project was to:
1. Characterize tap water isoscapes across SLV to develop isotope budgets for tap water systems.
2. Use the budgets and infrastructure data to infer the most important contributing regions to different municipal systems and evaporative water loss from these systems.
3. Combine management data, isotope characterization of environmental waters, and tap water isotope data to develop isotopic fingerprints for contrasting water management practice

Data Collection Methods: Collected tap water from different municipal districts across the SLV in a series of bi-annual hydrological surveys. The samples are collected from local businesses, homes and offices in April and October every year since 2013.The survey was designed in hydrologically contrasting seasons to capture potential seasonal differences in the tap water isotopes.

Location of Data Collection: We have collected data from approximately 140 sites every survey so far. The sites are located within the Salt Lake county, Utah. So far we have collected more than 800 samples. Each site is assigned a unique site ID (for example: SLV-WS-049 which stands for Salt lake valley water site number 049). The metadata includes the complete address and geographic location of the sites.

Timing of Data Collection:
April and October 2013
April and October 2014
April and October 2015.
April and October 2016.

We published the results in Water resources research ( DOI: 10.1002/2016WR019104)
