Abstract : The purpose of this study was to construct, calibrate, and verify a digital ground water model for use as an operational management and design tool for the north boundary containment treatment system. Calibration consisted of development of the predictive capabilities of the model by interactively refining the model parameters to closely approximate observed pre-barrier ground water conditions. The model was further refined by replication of historical barrier system operation and ground water conditions the calibrated model was utilized to simulate operation of the current system, as well as to predict results of several transport version of the model was used to investigate potential migratory pathways between the alluvial aquifer and the denver formation. The results suggest take the contamination observed in the denver formation is because on local vertical migration from the alluvial aquifer.
