Abstract : This report documents an overview of groundwater hydrology and a current technology review of equipment, methods, and techniques used in groundwater field investigations. Numerous topics applicable to the planning, scheduling, data collection, and integration steps essential in a comprehensive field program are addressed. The report, targeted for installation engineers and managers responsible for evaluation of or response to suspected instances of groundwater contamination, consists of two volumes. In volume I; 'Methodology', an assessment methodology, for investigating and evaluating known or suspected instances of contaminated groundwater is described. The methodology provides a starting point from which information gathering and data collection actions can be initiated. while response actions remain site-dependent, a general and logical approach to field activities is presented. An introductory summary of field investigative methods and analytical techniques, with data integration steps, appraises installation engineers of the complexities of field programs.
