Subject Groundwater -- Pollution -- Hawaii. Injection wells -- Hawaii. Sewage disposal in the ground -- Models -- Hawaii.
Description Injection of wastes into the Hawaiian subsurface environment presents unique problems because the waste effluents normally are 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...
