Singular perturbation techniques are used to obtain approximate concentration distributions that result when a recharge well discharges a finite volume of radioactive pollutant into an aquifer. The approximate solutions have a relatively simple form and are obtained for both a line source and a point source discharging into a flow that is at rest at infinity.
