Abstract : Years of accidental or deliberate dumping of petroleum products and hazardous waste materials has resulted in polluted groundwater. The Department of Defense is engaged in a massive program, known as the Installation Restoration Program, to cleanup these polluted environments on military installations, and the Environmental Protection Agency is funding research to help in the cleanup efforts. These cleanup efforts often involve drilling wells in the vicinity of the contaminated area and evacuating water until the concentration of pollutant is reasonably low. The planners at these remediation sites use tools to estimate how long the wells must operate based on some initial sample data and sound judgement. (jes)
