dc.description.abstractIn order to develop an effective petroleum repudiation ics. strategy, the interaction between surface and shallow subsurface water was determined for the San Jacinto River Oi1 Spill Remediation Research site. The ten-acre wetland is located on the south bank of the San Jacinto River near Channelview, Texas. Slug testing was performed in twelve wells located around the perimeter of the site to determine hydraulic conductivity. Values obtained by this method agreed with literature values for similar formations. Horizontal flow patterns were then determined by piezometric analysis and confirmed by in-situ Permeable Flow Sensors. Piezometer response to changes in river stage indicates that the shallow subsurface water is confined from surface water. The average horizontal flow velocity was found to be 2x10-7 m/s. The average azimuth of all data from the cove was 2100, trending towards the south-southwest in a direction consistent with river basin direction. Because the shallow subsurface water is confined and flow velocities are small, groundwater interaction with surface processes can be eliminated from consideration in developing repudiation strategies.en_US
