The waste management practices for both radioactive and hazardous wastes at the Hanford Site are designed to comply with all applicable state and federal regulations. Results from numerical simulation models are used to assess the risk to human health and the environment. The numerical models simulate flow and transport of contaminants through the vadose zone and the underlying unconfined aquifer. Numerical simulation results from several studies are summarized.
