Ground water modeling is an effective engineering and management tool for evaluating complex hydrogeologic situations in a cost effective manner. Objectives of a particular study dictate the complexity of the model and the data requirements. Utilizing models prior to field investigations will increase the effectiveness of data collected. Evaluation and testing of the accuracy of the model by sensitivity analysis will, on the other hand, enhance the capability of the model to predict future behavior.
