Preliminary evaluation of flow patterns and plume migration by computer simulation aids in determining the spacing of monitoring devices perpendicular to the flow direction, the location of devices downgradient of potential sources, the optimum depth settings for devices in vertically heterogeneous aquifers, and the frequency of sampling. Three examples illustrate the application of preliminary computer simulations in siting monitoring devices and identifying sampling frequencies.
