Evaluation of groundwater contamination in former military airport area

Lubomír Petrula, Jaromír Říha, Tomáš Julínek

Abstract

The analysis of groundwater contamination at the former military airport, due to fuel tanks leakage and other accidental spills, mainly involving polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), is presented in the paper. It was observed by modelling that, after termination of pumping, the contaminant by-passes the slurry wall around its edges and proceeds towards the withdrawal area. The modelling showed that the water contamination hazard is quite low, which is mainly due to pollutant deterioration (decay) and sorption.

Keywords
ground water pollution, contaminant transport modelling, sorption, hydraulic barrier
