Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Aberdeen, Maryland
Aberdeen Proving Ground includes several areas where groundwater contamination has resulted from landfills and shallow waste lagoons in unconsolidated sedimentary deposits on Chesapeake Bay. Several shallow, high-yield county and municipal water-supply wells are close to the site and may be endangered by the migration of contaminants.
A three-dimensional numerical model was constructed to simulate regional ground- water flow. The regional model will serve as the basis for more detailed models of individual waste site remediation efforts. Also was technical advisor to the Corps of Engineers for continued modeling activities on the base.
