Groundwater Models in Choosing Water Treatment Methods

by Paul W. Grosser, McLendon & Murrell, Melville, NY, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computer Applications in Water Resources


This paper presents an example of the use of groundwater models to identify the source of contamination and then design a treatment scheme. Included is a discussion of several different methods of organics treatment (air stripping, spray aeration and granular activated carbon), their costs and which is most appropriate based upon the results of the groundwater modeling effort. Conclusions to be drawn from the paper are that groundwater models can be a major part of the water resource management decision process. Their use provides not only physical information about the response of an aquifer system, but information of importance for an economic evaluation as well.
