Title: Effects of inflow on NuMI groundwater concentrations

Abstract

Recent discussions of the NuMI groundwater problem have been concerned with the effect of inflow of water into the tunnel on the overall groundwater concentration. The purpose of this note is to document calculations of these effects using simple mathematical models. These results can, then, be compared with the results obtained using more elaborate methods such as computer modeling techniques. At Fermilab, a concentration model has been developed to address groundwater activation concerns. While this model has evolved to some degree over time, the main features have remained stable.
