Abstract: A 3D numerical model of a groundwater flow and transport was developed to study the movement of radionuclides in the Savannah River Nuclear Site, South Carolina. The modeling effort has been done in a regional scale. This paper describes a procedure for selecting of the stationary and steady-state hydrologic boundaries, initial condition, and mesh development. The developed systematic procedures may be used to improve numerical efficiency and accuracy for a long-term transient flow and transport simulation. The results of this study also may be used for detailed modeling of the site with the specific management considerations.
