Groundwater flow and contaminant transport modelling are combined with geological characterization data uncertainty in a computationally efficient method to estimate the reliability, or uncertainty, associated with various groundwater remediation designs. The reliability estimate provides information to the project regarding the probability of success of the design based on the current field data, the likelihood that new field data will improve the reliability of the performance estimate, and the location in the field where new data will most benefit the design. This approach recognises that reliability of design performance depends on both the uncertainty associated with the geological model and the impact of this uncertainty on the performance model.
