About this book

The second edition of "Restoration of Contaminated Aquifers: Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Compounds" incorporates the latest advances in in-situ remediation and natural attenuation, and maintains the comprehensive, accessible structure that made the first edition a classic. The new edition broadens the scope of the first by examining all forms of hydrocarbon contamination. The authors emphasize the remediation of Non-aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs) and, Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (DNAPLs). They also address the growing role of natural attenuation. The second edition opens with an improved introduction. There are new sections on site characterization, remediation economics and site closure. And unlike other books on this subject, the new edition offers vital managerial and project management guidance, such as, initial project planning and assessment, a look at remediation economics, and a how-to on project closure and follow-up.Since its initial publication in 1991, "Restoration of Petroleum Hydrocarbon Contaminated Aquifers" has been the established, invaluable reference for environmental professionals and regulators. Its sweeping, yet approachable format is inestimable in the field, in the lab, and in the policy-making arena. "Restoration of Contaminated Aquifers: Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Compounds" will continue to be the guide to the war against petroleum contamination.
