SCREENING OF GROUNDWATER CONTAMINANTS BY TRAVEL-TIME

In this paper, methods for computing travel-time distributions are described, and then applied to a number of examples. The relative importance of hydrologic variability and soil spatial variability is evaluated. The use of travel-time distributions for the screening of chemicals and sites to identify or rank potential groundwater pollution problems is also demonstrated. Although the proposed methods are appropriate for any chemical subject to leaching, applications in this paper are limited to organic chemicals. Conclusions drawn from the study are presented.
