Abstract
We addressed the value of hydrogeological information on the assessment of the risk that an operating pumping well is polluted. The work considered a heterogeneous aquifer and focused on the statistical characterization of the contaminant mass fraction from a diffused source recovered at the well and the solute arrival times. We explored the role of the key length scales that characterize and control the well capture region and its probabilistic delineation with respect to the contaminant source...
