Title: GoldSim® Aquifer Model Calibration and Plume Interaction

Abstract

The E-Area Low-Level Waste Facility (ELLWF) Probabilistic Aquifer Model (PAM) utilizes GoldSim ® Monte Carlo simulation software (GTG, 2017) to evaluate the transport of a tracer species as it travels from the water table below the disposal unit footprint, through the aquifer, to the Point of Assessment (POA) at the 100-meter boundary. This report documents the development and calibration of PAM as well as the implementation of plume interaction. PAM is a key component of the effort to include uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis (UQSA) in the next revision of the E-Area Performance Assessment (PA), considering recommendations from the 2015 PA strategic planning team outlined by Butcher and Phifer (2016). The Aquifer Model and associated optimized geometric parameters will be implemented in the future GoldSim® (GS) system model that will simulate subsurface flow and radionuclide transport from the ground surface to the 100-meter POA.
