Abstract

The robustness of optimal hydraulic control solutions developed using an average hydraulic conductivity is examined. A base case optimal pumping strategy with constant hydraulic conductivity was developed with a groundwater flow simulation-optimization model. A Monte Carlo approach, using the same well locations and head constraints as the base case, was used to determine the feasibility of simulations with heterogeneous conductivity fields. Heterogeneous conductivity fields were generated using the turning bands method. Results are presented which indicate the robustness of the optimal solutions under varied scenarios.
