In Situ Remediation Engineering
In Situ Remediation Engineering provides a comprehensive guide to the design and implementation of reactive zone methods for treatment of all major classes of groundwater contamination, including hydrophobic and miscible organics, metals, and other high-solubility inorganics. It teaches the fundamentals that underlie development of cost-effective reactive zone strategies, such as contaminant distribution and transport patterns, chemical and biological mechanisms that can be used to achieve oxidation, reduction, or precipitation of target compounds, and identification and management of by-products and secondary water quality impacts of treatment technologies. This book guides the selection of cost-effective remedial strategies and provides environmental engineers and scientists with tools to achieve optimal deployment of source area, reactive barrier, and site-wide treatments. It offers extensive coverage of remedial system operation, discussing reagent injection strategies, interpretation of process monitoring results for biological and chemical reactive zone systems, and impacts of treatment processes on aquifer hydraulic characteristics. The text emphasizes the innovative and experimental treatment technologies for emerging contaminants such as radionuclides, explosives, pharmaceutical compounds, perchlorate, chlorophenols, and solvent stabilizers.
