This thesis describes the calibration and application of a solute transport model for predicting the extent of mixing that will occur between artificial recharge and existing aquifer water. Specifically, the research objectives were to: 1. Develop a model to analyze solute transport in a confined aquifer, 2. Apply the model to the Huron recharge site and estimate the degree of mixing that will occur between the injected water and ground water, 3. Estimate the amount of injected water that can be recovered, and 4. Predict the outcome of a field tracer test.
