  • Agriculture and the Environment

    The book describes the excess supply of nutrients and manure to agricultural lands and the resulting problems of groundwater contamination and surface water eutrophication. It reviews these practices in the main EU countries and in North America and proposes a new sustainable approach for dealing with this environmental deterioration. ...

  • Groundwater Management in Asian Cities

    In 2007, the world's urban population surpassed the number of people living in rural areas and is still growing. The number of city dwellers who do not have access to piped water and rely on groundwater is also increasing. In many Asian cities, groundwater is not only the source of domestic water but also an important resource for industrial ...

  • 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 ...

  • Groundwater Contamination by Solvent Stabilizers: Remediation of 1,4 Dioxane

    While tremendous progress has been made in remediating sites that have been contaminated by chlorinated solvents, stabilizers that are added to chlorinated solvents in order to improve their performance have been overlooked. This book is the first to focus on the little-known contaminant 1,4 Dioxane. Written by the authority in the field, it ...

  • Field Hydrogeology: A Guide for Site Investigations and Report Preparation

    In recent years, the focus in groundwater studies has expanded to also include groundwater contamination and remediation studies as a part of resource evaluations. While there are other books on the subject, Field Hydrogeology-A Guide for Site Investigations and Report Preparation provides the first integrated presentation of the American Society ...

  • The Handbook of Groundwater Engineering, Second Edition

    A complete treatment of the theory and practice of groundwater engineering, The Handbook of Groundwater Engineering, Second Edition provides a current and detailed review of how to model the flow of water and the transport of contaminants both in the unsaturated and saturated zones, covers the production of groundwater and the remediation of ...

  • Current Problems of Hydrogeology in Urban Areas, Urban Agglomerates and Industrial Centres

    Groundwater issues have generated worldwide concern in recent decades. The problems are numerous: too little groundwater, too much groundwater, groundwater contaminated by either saline water or a broad spectrum of industrial and domestic pollutants. Many urban groundwater problems are not unique to any one region, which is the thinking behind ...

  • Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems

    Sewer systems constitute a very significant heritage in European cities. Their structural quality and functional efficiency are key parameters to guarantee the transfer of domestic and industrial wastewater to treatment plants without infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is particularly detrimental to treatment plant ...

  • Advanced Methods for Groundwater Pollution Control

    In recent years the analysis, control, preservation, remediation and correct management of underground resources have received a growing attention in a variety of sectors, including industrial, professional and academic environments. The volume describes new developments in both applied research and design technology to maintain sustainability of ...

  • Creative Common Law Strategies for Protecting the Environment

    Environmental common law litigation has reemerged in recent years as a powerful second pathway alongside statutory avenues for practitioners, communities, and governments to seek redress to environmental wrongs. Creative Common Law Strategies for Protecting the Environment vividly illustrates that environmental common law has never been more ...

  • Groundwater for Sustainable Development: Problems, Perspectives and Challenges

    Designed to provide a common platform for sharing knowledge and experience, this book presents state of the art developments in the field of groundwater. Recognizing the importance of integrated water resources management, the text covers technical, environmental, legal, economic, and social aspects of groundwater resources management, ...

  • Transport of Escherichia Coli in Saturated Porous Media

    When wastewater infiltrates into the soil, groundwater may be contaminated. If the distance from source of pollution to point of groundwater abstraction is small, there is a real chance of abstracting pathogenic microorganisms. This book studies the transport of Escherichia coli in aquifers under saturated conditions. The author uses the well ...
