Course Description

This presentation highlights the importance of assessing vertical groundwater flow in order to properly delineate groundwater contamination, effectively assess the fate and transport of dissolved contaminant plumes, evaluate applicable water use standards, and develop effective remediation plans. A description of characterization requirements and examples will be provided to highlight the importance and benefits of assessing vertical groundwater flow.
