As part of the overall Love Canal monitoring effort an assessment of the ground water hydrology of the Love Canal area, New York was performed. As part of this assessment, ground-water flow models were used to aid in well siting, data analysis and reduction, and prediction of ground water movement. This report describes the model development, use of model in site selection, and use of model to make predictions concerning spread of contamination.
