For the most part workers have assumed that salt represents
a material which is impervious to fluids and by virtue of its
behavior as a viscoelastic material would represent a self-sealing
system with effectively no release to the external environment.
While it is true that bedded salt and salt domes have ex-
tremely low permeabilities, they are not zero. Under the condi-
tions where potential contamination risks may exist for hundreds
of thousands of years, even the smallest permeabilities may become
important. Laboratory measurements of salt permeabilities were
conducted by Gloyna and Reynolds (1961) which resulted in values
on the order of 10 millidarcys (a measure of permeability) for
Here’s what’s next.
