The prospects for plume diving should be considered when placing wells at all sites. The first consideration should be indications of dipping strata from well logs. These can control the distribution of contaiminants down gradient from the source. Recharge can also cause plume diving. The calculator shows the effect due to recharge only. The implication of the results are that for some aquifers the recharge of clean water to the aquifer can push the plume deeper into the aquifer.
