This document allows you to operate a simple computer model of groundwater contaminant transport. The model used in this example predicts the downward migration of leachate from a landfill to an underlying aquifer. While the example is hypothetical, it illustrates a number of the real world concerns that are associated with the operation of municipal and industrial landfills.
