Abstract: Contamination from petroleum hydrocarbons spilled from USTs is a concern in urban areas that depend on shallow unconfined aquifers for their water supply. Studies on the transmissivity and other hydraulic properties of the upper layers of aquifers are most times missing, making the design of groundwater remediation facilities very difficult. This paper describes a methodology to evaluate the accuracy of three analytical methods employed to predict aquifer transmissivity using drawdown data from pump-and-treat remediation sites.
