Abstract:

This effort developed methodology for determining the most efficient and cost-effective pumping schemes for cleaning up contaminated aquifers. The methodology, formulated by a panel of experts, will enable engineers to systematically determine 1 the optimum number of extraction and injection wells 2 the optimum location for the wells and 3 their optimum pumping rates. The optimum pumping schemes developed from the methodology will reduce the time and cost of cleaning up contaminated aquifers.
