About this book

Groundwater monitoring wells are used to measure the infiltration of contaminants into groundwater aquifers that feed public drinking supplies. The analysis of the data from these wells is extremely important. "False positives" (detecting a pollutant that does not exist) can lead to needless expenditure in site assessment and remediation. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the appropriate use of statistics to make the most accurate use of groundwater monitoring data, and to set up an effective monitoring programme.
