Application of the Aquifer Impact Model to the Decatur Site


License Not Specified

Key Findings:

  • Developed workflow for applying aquifer ROM to a new site (see figure)

  • Some non adjustable parameters are significantly different than observations

  • Hydraulic parameters and source term magnitude are more sensitive than clay fraction or CEC

  • Constraining sand permeability reduced aquifer volume impacted by an order of magnitude

  • Constraining all sensitive parameters reduced range of uncertainty by several orders of magnitude
