Subject Waste disposal in the ground -- Hydraulic models. Groundwater -- Hydraulic models.
Description Injection of wastes into a Ghyben-Herzberg groundwater system presents unique problems because the waste effluents are normally injected into the salt or brackish water underlying the fresh Ghyben-Herzberg lens. Because the waste water commonly has approximately the same density as fresh water, in addition to any ambient groundwater flow effects, a buoyant uplift is produced which causes the injected waste to move upward and outward from the injection point as a buoyant plume. A laboratory...
