Predicting Mercury Impacts to Groundwater from Coal Ash

Predicting Mercury Impacts to Groundwater from Coal Ash

Author: Michael Kuznetz

This course presents a new mathematical algorithm that defines the maximum initial mercury (HgII) concentration in groundwater leachate from a hypothetical coal combustion fly ash landfill. The algorithm was derived based on HgII Mass Law for the vadose zone of inorganic and slightly organic confined and unconfined aquifers. It can and should be used to better characterize initial boundary conditions for the purpose of HgII groundwater plume delineation.
