In this activity, students play the roles of investigators looking for the source of fuel that is contaminating wells in a fictional town. They will use a topographic map and information about groundwater flow and well locations to determine the source of the pollution. Questions help students understand how groundwater flows and how a contamination plume spreads over time. In an extension to the ... Full description.
