Evergreen’s answer on the website to the question of whether climate change will be incorporated in the groundwater modeling states, “the boundary condition data variability must be quantifiable and based on accepted models or observations.” What in plain language does this response mean? You have not directly answered the question. What efforts are being made to quantify the boundary condition data? Are accepted models available or not? If not, why not?

Evergreen plans to evaluate climate change data in support of groundwater modeling for contaminant fate and transport. The effort will include a review of available literature on climate change predictions for the Philadelphia region. Accepted climate models would be those that are published, peer-reviewed, and/or otherwise viewed as reliable and relevant to future conditions at the facility. Quantifiable refers to the need for climate change data to be numeric in nature so that the values can be incorporated into Evergreen’s modeling.
