Guidance for Evaluation of Potential Groundwater Mounding Associated with Cluster and High-Density Wastewater Soil Absorption System

Publication Date: January 2005
Cooperating Institution: Colorado School of Mines
Principal Investigator: Eileen Poeter, Ph.D.
Project Budget: $87,327
Project Identifier: WU-HT-02-45


This project will produce a report identifying and discussing appropriate hydrogeological investigations and analysis methods for siting and design of large cluster and high density wastewater soil absorption systems. In addition to addressing field investigative methods, appropriate modeling tools, and the costs and benefits associated with the various methods of investigation will be examined. Case studies illustrating the appropriate application of investigation techniques and modeling approaches will be provided.
