About this book

This resource introduces water engineers and hydrologists to the basic concepts of groundwater technologies designed to improve water resources availability and planning and goes on to cover risk, modelling, regulatory concepts and sample projects.

This book explores alternative programs for protecting water resources by using natural aquifer systems, and describes their limitations and design criteria, including regulations, groundwater modeling, risk assessment, and pertinent case studies. Two engineers and a hydrologist working in Florida present the groundwater equations that govern injection projects, outline geological characteristics to evaluate when considering injection programs as part of a utility system, and address some of the operational issues associated with injection programs. Several types of computer flow models and the threats posed by microorganisms are summarized.
