It is recognized that physical and chemical interactions between adjacent ground water and surface water bodies are an important factor impacting water budget and nutrient/ contaminant transport within a watershed. This observation is also of importance for hazardous waste site cleanup within the United States, since about 75% of sites regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund) are located within a half mile of a surface-water body. The boundary between adjacent groundwater and surface-water bodies is referred to as the ground-water/surface-water (GW/ SW) transition zone. The purpose of this document is to provide a brief overview of the dynamics of chemical processes that govern contaminant transport and speciation during water exchange across the GW/SW transition zone and to present results from a field study examining the fate of arsenic during ground-water discharge into a shallow lake at a contaminated site. A conceptual model of the GW/SW transition zone is defined to serve as a starting point for prioritizing tasks carried out during site characterization to define contaminant mass flux across the GW/SW transition zone. This information is a critical component towards establishing site-specific risks and alternatives for remedial intervention to reduce or eliminate these risks.
