Groundwater Modelling



Our Role

SMEC’s scope of work included:

  • Establish comprehensive numerical models to simulate the chemical and flow behavior of contaminants in groundwater
  • Prepare a range of conceptual designs for feasible groundwater remediation options including engineering and environmental aspects
  • Determine the most effective remediation approach through testing a range of remediation options
  • Recommend a preferred remediation approach
  • Build capacity within the Kuwait Ministry of Electricity and Water to maintain, update and apply the preferred model.
