Our work has been funded by the Texas Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Authority and by the National Low-Level Waste Program (Tom Kerr, Idaho National Engineering Laboratory). The authors benefited greatly from a visit and discussions with Glendon Gee and Andy Ward at the Hanford site, Washington. The authors also acknowledge valuable discussions with Randy Charbeneau and Beth Gross (Center for Research in Water Resources, The University of Texas at Austin), Dave Daniels (Geotechnical Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin), Arnold Ashburn, Daryl Jones, and Doug Bell (Radian International, Austin, Texas), and Ravi Murthy and Jim Hussey (Dames and Moore, Phoenix, Arizona).
