This report calibrates the groundwater transport pathway of the SMART biosolids model to data obtained from field monitoring of wet weather events. The calibrated model is then applied to a wide variety of fault scenarios developed from an expert elicitation exercise. The estimated risks associated with scenarios are compared with estimated frequencies of occurrence found by a survey of biosolids land application practitioners to identify the scenarios of greatest concern.

This title belongs to WERF Research Report Series.
