4 Housekeeping Prerequisites: CE 356 Hydraulics Text: Homework:
Groundwater Hydrology, Todd, David Keith, Larry W. Mays, John Wiley & Sons, 2004 ($40 on Homework: Due dates on web site Excessively late (> 2 days) penalized 50% per day late Expectations: Clear presentation, No computational errors, Answers clearly marked, Units marked and used correctly Software: GroundwaterVistas (graphical interface for USGS MODFLOW)

5 Housekeeping (Cont.) Grading: Exams (2): 40% Homework: 20%
No makeups No Final Homework: % Project: % Letter grades will be assigned as follows: A 92 – 100% A- 89 – 91% B+ 86 – 88% B 82 – 85% B- 79 – 81% C+ 76 – 78% C 70 – 75% C- 67 – 69% D+ 64 – 66% D 58 – 63% D- 55 – 58% F < 55%

6 Projects Work in a team on a design project dealing with limiting hydraulic containment of a contaminated aquifer Real, complex groundwater issue Each team Make an oral presentation of their results Deliver a final report (the presentation, model and results) Purposes of the project: Enable you to explore in-depth an aspect of groundwater Provide experience formulating, executing and presenting a groundwater investigation
