Dear Mr. Park: I am starting a project that will deal with chemical equilibrium and I wanted to determine if there is consensus within USGS and USEPA as to which of these models is most appropriate for problems of this nature. I was told that the client wants to do the work with MINTEQ but I am not sure of his rationale. Are there any pitfalls with using MINTEQ over PHREEQC? I have successfully installed a windows version of MINTEQ that was developed by the Swedish. It seems to operate fine. However the US EPA version of MINTEQ is DOS-based and not compatible with Windows XP. Given what you know please provide opinions about the use of one or both of these programs.
