  • The Economics of Groundwater Remediation and Protection

    Economic literature is often too theoretical for engineers and policymakers to put into practical use, while scientific literature on the remediation of contaminated aquifers rarely considers costs and benefits. Written by a hydrogeologist and an economist, The Economics of Groundwater Remediation and Protection integrates economics and ...

  • Contaminated Ground Water and Sediment: Modeling for Management and Remediation

    Billions of dollars are spent annually on surface and groundwater remediation, generating a demand by the public and government for effective modeling of contaminant fate and transport, with the hope that accurate models will result in the effective application of remediation efforts-and an efficient distribution of remediation ...

  • Groundwater Arsenic Remediation

    Arsenic abatement from groundwater in locations with a central water distribution system is relatively simple. The real challenge is selecting the most effective and affordable treatment and scale up option for locations which lack the appropriate infrastructure. Groundwater Arsenic Remediation: Treatment Technology and Scale UP provides the ...

  • Physicochemical Groundwater Remediation

    As we transition into the 21st century, it is apparent that this is an exciting time for environmental engineers and scientists studying remediation technologies. There has been a rapid development of new ways to clean-up polluted groundwater. Research activities of the past and next 10 years will have a dramatic impact on the quality of the ...

  • Immobilised Biocatalysts for Bioremediation of Groundwater and Wastewater

    The European project MINOTAURUS explored innovative bio-processes to eliminate emerging and classic organic pollutants. These bio-processes are all based on the concept of immobilization of biocatalysts (microorganisms and enzymes) and encompass bioaugmentation, enzyme technology, rhizoremediation with halophytes, and a bioelectrochemical ...

  • Long-term Performance of Permeable Reactive Barriers

    While extensive research has been performed on many technological aspects of permeable reactive barriers and a number of contaminants have so far been successfully treated by PRB systems, long-term performance has not been extensively considered and little is known about the processes influencing long-term behaviour. This gap in our knowledge is ...

  • Groundwater 2000: Proceedings of the International Conference on Groundwater Research, Copenhagen, Denmark, 6-8 June 2000

    These proceedings, with cd-rom, present a comprehensive overview of advances in groundwater research.  The five main topics covered are: aquifers and contaminant distribution; groundwater quality; natural attenuation; remediation technologies and groundwater protection.  Groundwater 2000 is a useful resource to both scientists and to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Proven and Cost-Effective Groundwater Resource Restoration

    Proven and Cost-Effective Groundwater Resource Restoration is a collection of papers presented at past international symposia organized by Battelle Memorial Institute. Considered by many to be the most important meetings in the field of groundwater and soil restoration, these events have been held annually since 1991. Regulators, researchers, and ...

  • Uranium, Mining and Hydrogeology

    Subject of the book is Uranium and its migration in aquatic environments. The following subjects are emphasised: Uranium mining, Phosphate mining, mine closure and remediation, Uranium in groundwater and in bedrock, biogeochemistry of Uranium, environmental behavior, and modeling. Particular results from the leading edge of international research ...

  • Groundwater

    This book is the outcome of the invited topics from various international experts in the field of groundwater resource evaluation, characterization, augmentation, restoration, modeling and management. It comprehensively deals with the resource evaluation through remote sensing (RS) along with GIS, resistivity tomography for identification of ...

  • Cause and Prevention of Clogging of Wells Abstracting Groundwater from Unconsolidated Aquifers

    Part of Groundwater Set - Buy all six books and save over 30% on buying separately!  Groundwater serves many purposes. It is a source of public and private drinking water, it is utilized as an industrial feedstock and it is used in agriculture for irrigation and cattle watering. The abstraction of groundwater also serves many civil engineering ...

  • Modeling Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport

    In many parts of the world, groundwater resources are under increasing threat from growing demands, wasteful use, and contamination. To face the challenge, good planning and management practices are needed. A key to the management of groundwater is the ability to model the movement of fluids and contaminants in the subsurface. The purpose of this ...

  • 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 ...

  • Computational Methods in Water Resources

    These volumes contain the proceedings of CMWR2002, which was hosted by the Faculty of Civil Engineering & Geosciences at Delft University of Technology. The interest in this meeting was truly overwhelming: around 230 papers from leading scientists were submitted and accepted for publication in the proceedings. The actual scope of the meeting was ...

  • Advanced Methods for Groundwater Pollution Control
