About this book

This work focuses on a problem-oriented approach to diagnosing well deterioration. It integrates concepts from hydrogeology, hydrochemistry and microbiology to give a thorough understanding of water well deterioration processes. Scenarios have been developed to illustrate common causes of water well fouling. A feature of the text is the treatment of both corrosion and fouling issues in depth. Case studies selected from around the world are used to illustrate approaches to the diagnosis and remediation of well deterioration. These scientifically orientated perspectives on water well deterioration are embedded within a management framework to provide a comprehensive approach to dealing with water well deterioration.
