Abstract
The subsurface environment of ground water is characterized by a complex interplay of physical, geochemical and biological forces that govern the release, transport and fate of a variety of chemical substances. The impact of natural ground-water recharge and discharge processes on distributions of chemical constituents is understood for only a few types of chemical species. A purpose of the document is to discuss measures that can be taken to ensure that uncertainties do not undermine the ability to make reliable predictions about the response of contamination to various corrective or preventive measures. The need exists for a resource document that brings together available technical information in a form convenient for ground-water personnel within EPA and state and local governments on whom EPA ultimately depends for proper ground-water management. Volume II, Methodology describes various investigative approaches and techniques. Although extensively revised, part of Volume II was obtained from previous publications.
