Abstract

During the characterization of the subsurface fluxes, the use of different techniques (geophysical, hydrological, hydrochemical) usually help to understand the processes taking place within the aquifer (Schürch & Buckley 2002). Generally, low-permeability, non-reactive, horizontal flow barriers (HFBs) are used to contain contaminants in aquifer and prevent further spreading of contaminants in groundwater. Grout curtains HFBs, which are the focus of this study, are supposed to be impermeable. Barriers are typically used in conjunction with interior and exterior extraction wells to help maximize containment inside the barrier and capture leakage outside the barrier (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1996).
