Abstract: An analytical Monitoring Efficiency Model (MEMO) is presented to support the design of monitoring well networks at hazardous waste sites. The method simulates the migration of hypothetical contaminant plumes from the site and quantifies the detection efficiency of the well network. Maps showing areas where releases would and would not be detected are produced, providing insight into the benefits of each well location and guiding the optimization process.
