Abstract : THIS REPORT IS ONE OF FIELD TESTS CONDUCTED AT RMA OF DESIGN CONCEPTS FOR THE RECHARGE COMPONENT OF THE PILOT CONTAINMENT SYSTEM AT THE NORTH BOUNDARY. TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION: (A) EASE OF MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION, (B) ABILITY TO ACQUIRE ACCURATE OPERATIONAL TEST DATA, (C) THE NUMBER OF RECHARGE POINTS REQUIRED TO REPRODUCE THE NATURAL AQUIFER DISTRIBUTION, AND (D) THE ABILITY TO BALANCE THE DEWATERING AND RECHARGE OPERATIONS TO ACCOMMODATE SEASONAL VARIATION ON AQUIFER FLOW, IT -IS RECOMMENDED THAT A SYSTEM OF 12, 16 INCH DIAMETER WELLS, INSTALLED AND CONSISTENT WITH PRACTICES NORMALLY USED IN DEVELOPING A WATER SUPPLY WELL, BE EMPLOYED IN THE NORTH BOUNDARY PILOT CONTAINMENT SYSTEM TO RECHARGE THE WATER FROM THE WATER TREATMENT FACILITY BACK INTO THE AQUIFER.
