Savannah River Plant was created to produce nuclear-weapons materials during the Cold War. After the end of the Cold War, Savannah River Plant has become Savannah River Site (SRS) with emphasis on environmental stewardship. This research serves as baseline data to contribute to a better understanding of the spatial distribution of the background-groundwater system at the SRS. The methods of this study systematically linearize analyte parameters and establishes rank values, weight values, and aggregates the parameters. The aggregation value establishes a means to determine groundwater quality based on the analytes sampled as a comparison to their respectively recognized Environmental Protection Agency and World Health Organization standards.
