This review describes various approaches to propagate uncertainty inherent with the hydrogeological, chemical, and biological input parameters for groundwater flow and contaminant transport models employed to design remediation systems. Design reliability is used to guide site exploration, to compare different remedial designs, and to indicate when sufficient data have been collected to evaluate the design. Also described is a computationally efficient framework to integrate site characterization with aquifer and soil remediation design. A simple example is used to illustrate how design reliability is developed and employed to assess both exploration and design.
