Using a Geographic Information System to Manage Data from a Ground-Water Remediation Program


As the attention to environmental issues has grown over the past several years, so has the focus on ground-water protection. Addressing the task of ground-water remediation often involves a large-scale program with numerous wells and enormous amounts of analytical data. These data must be manipulated and analyzed in an efficient manner for the remediation program to be truly effective. Geographic information systems (GIS) have proven to be an extremely effective tool in handling and interpreting ground-water data. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the audience to the Savannah River Site (SRS), describe how GIS technology is being utilized in the ground-water remediation program, and discuss future plans for GIS at SRS.
