Section 10: Ground Water - Waste Characteristics & Targets
This graphic shows where this section falls into the HRS structure. With the likelihood of release factor value already calculated in Section 9, calculating the remaining two factor values -- waste characterics and targets -- will allow the pathway score to be calculated.
Remember: A "pathway" score is determined for each aquifer and the score associated with the highest scoring aquifer is the ground water pathway score. The scoresheet (HRS Rule Table 3-1) is formally completed only for the highest scoring pathway.
