This paper deals with the development of analytical screening-exposure models (indices) and their potential application to regulate the use of hazardous chemicals and the design of ground water buffer strips. The indices describe the leaching of solutes below the root zone (mass fraction), emissions to the water table, and mass fraction of the contaminant intercepted by a well or a surface water body.
