In Finland site investigations are carried out at five places in order to find a suitable site in the Finnish bedrock for a repository for spent nuclear fuel. The aim is to model the bedrock and the ground water flow to facilitate comparison of the sites. In this work we describe the geohydrological model as well as the finite element models for one of the sites and present some preliminary estimates for flow rates and path lines based upon the computed head field.
