The USDOE and it’s contractors have completed regional groundwater flow and transport models for the PGDP and it’s environs. These initial PGDP models have been evaluated and independently calibrated through oversight modeling conducted by the University of Kentucky. Subsequent modeling conducted by the University of Kentucky has focused on evaluation of the effectiveness of proposed remedial technologies on regional and local scales and on the identification of potential pump and treat groundwater remedial approaches. The initial focus of the current modeling evaluation will be to provide a formal validation of the USDOE’s modeling efforts and to provide formal recommendations for improvements to those models. Additional focus will be to provide summary analysis of the effectiveness of proposed remedial projects and other possible approaches to the remediation of off-site groundwater contamination at the PGDP.
