Water infiltration and percolation at the University of Arizona radioactive waste burial site, Pinal County, ArizonaSalvetti, Joseph Peter.; Dutt, Gordon R. (The University of Arizona., 1984)The University of Arizona produces different types of radioactively contaminated waste. It is shipped to a burial site located on the Oracle Agricultural Center in Pinal County, Arizona and disposed of in shallow pits. This study dealt with water movement at the disposal site. Monitoring of water movement through young pits was accomplished with a neutron probe. It was found that due to slumping and cracking of the pit cap, the younger pits were very susceptible to greater than normal water infiltration. Further data were gathered around the older pits by deep soil sampling for tritium activity. Water fluxes and travel times to the major aquifer were calculated from these data. Estimates of travel times range from 40 to 230,000 years to reach the principal aquifer at 150 m.
Hydrogeology and simulation of ground-water and surface-water flow in Pinal Creek Basin, Gila County, ArizonaNeaville, Chris C. (The University of Arizona., 1991)Acidic water with elevated concentrations of metals has contaminated a stream and alluvial aquifer in a mining district near Globe, Arizona. The contaminated aquifer is a narrow layer of unconsolidated alluvium along Miami Wash and Final Creek. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the hydrogeology of this area and to simulate the surface- and ground-water flow. The alluvium overlies basin fill which extends throughout most of Final Creek basin. Together, the alluvium and basin fill comprise the primary aquifer in the basin. Horizontal hydraulic conductivities have been estimated to be about 200 m/day in the alluvium, and average linear, ground-water flow velocities are on the order of 5 m/day. Flow was simulated by a three-dimensional, finite-difference, ground-water flow model that maintains a streamflow water budget. Steady-state simulations were performed and adjusted to represent average annual water budget conditions. The transient simulation period covers September 1984 to April 1989, for which considerable data were available for model calibration.
