USU first estimated the future TCE concentrations that would result if no pumping strategy were implemented (Figure 5, Scenario AO). Then USU used the procedure of Appendix B with the model formulation of Appendix C to compute optimal pumping strategies. In computing optimal strategies USU cycled until an arbitrary three percent contaminant mass convergence criterion was satisfied.
