Abstract: The authors show analytic solutions to the problem of contaminant dispersion from an array of point sources in a waste disposal site. These solutions are for waste sources in a fluid-saturated porous medium, and may be for isotropic or anisotropic dispersion. The solutions are illustrated through isopleths of contaminants for a planar array of point sources perpendicular to ground-water flow. The concentration fields several meters away from this plane can be approximated by equivalent plane sources.
