Abstract: Recently, an optimal groundwater management model has been developed to treat groundwater remediation problems at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The objective of the model is to identify the best remediation strategies (well site selection and pumping rates) so that water quality standards are met at a specified reliability level within a given time frame. A thorough understanding of the hydrodynamic behavior of aquifer systems requires a complete and accurate determination of the physical parameters of the groundwater system. An example, the one we will examine here, is the identification of three-dimensional hydraulic conductivity fields for LLNL's Main Site.
