Likelihood of Release

  • Likelihood of release is evaluated in the same manner as for the groundwater pathway.
    • Except, likelihood of release is evaluated only to the uppermost aquifer.

  • In the overland/flood migration component, an observed release to surface water can also document actual contamination of targets. In this component, an observed release to the uppermost aquifer does not establish actual contamination of surface water targets.
