**v Ground Water Flow Rates**

Confidently use the following formulas to make calculations regarding ground water flow rates:

- Darcy's Law
- the formula for average linear velocity, and
- the formula rate x time = distance

v
Ground Water Contamination and Remediation

Describe the following remediation
methods with regard to their use and applicability:

Source
removal

"Dig and
dump"

"Pump and
treat"

Plume
control: slurry walls, gradient (flow) manipulation

Bioremediation

Permeable
Reactive Barrier (PRB)

In-situ Redox
Manipulation (ISRM)

v
Plumebusters: A case of ground water
contamination

Using
Plumebusters , test
out several remediation methods. Using each of the methods, estimate the
cost required to fully remediate the aquifer.
