A risk assessment tool for contaminated sites in low-permeability fractured media


This report describes the development of a fracture transport module for inclusion in the Danish EPA JAGG risk assessment tool.

In Denmark, many contaminated sites are located in areas with low permeability or fractured geologies such as glacial moraine clays. Fractures increase the risk of fast transport of contaminants to underlying groundwater systems. It is therefore important to consider fracture transport when evaluating the risk of contaminated sites to drinking water resources.
