About this book

Unlike reference works that narrowly focus on only a few aspects of this contaminant, this book offers a comprehensive, single source of information on perchlorate contamination in the environment. Organized to follow the logical sequence of identifying and solving contamination problems, the book provides the foundation necessary to understand perchlorate's occurrence, environmental behavior, regulatory status, and remediation. The authors use case studies of perchlorate contamination in soil, groundwater, and surface water to illustrate these points. These case studies provide perspective on issues commonly faced by scientists, engineers, and managers of perchlorate-impacted sites.
