Abstract

The theoretical basis of a risk-management approach to wellhead protection is developed. Contaminant sources are divided into two categories: chronic sources and spills. For chronic sources risk-analysis yields the expected risk of an adverse health effect to the population served by the wells. In the case of spills, risk analysis yields the maximum probable concentration (MPC) in the pumped water for a given design spill. Using the risk-analysis procedure developed in this study, a defined level of protection is associated with land uses within the zone of contribution of a wellfield. -from Authors
