A key resource on groundwater remediation, thoroughly updated and revised The cleanup of groundwater is unique. Unlike every other type of water, groundwater is not self-cleaning; we must clean the body of water, the aquifer, itself. Evan Nyer's Groundwater Treatment Technology has been the key to understanding the treatment of groundwater contamination for professionals in environmental engineering and treatment systems. Adapting to recent developments in technology, regulations, and approaches for mitigating newly monitored contaminants, this Third Edition updates and extends its coverage, this time with a dedicated focus on aboveground treatment. Groundwater Treatment Technology, Third Edition provides a complete review of current technologies for groundwater treatment. It also explains the design techniques that are required to apply those technologies successfully in a groundwater cleanup and provides the reader with the unique design criteria and detailed knowledge of these specific treatment methods.
Given the current prominence of aboveground treatment, the text limits the design discussion to aboveground techniques, though it still discusses how the various aboveground technologies interact with various in-situ methods. New to the Third Edition: A unique focus on aboveground treatment technologies Coverage of new treatment methods and regulations for arsenic, radon, 1,4-dioxane, MTBE, perchlorate, and NDMA among others New material covering the operations of treatment systems Detailed strategies for remediation Specific data on treatment methods as applied in the field Wide-ranging, authoritative, and completely updated, the Third Edition of Groundwater Treatment Technology is essential reading for wastewater engineers, industrial managers, hydrologists, soil experts, government officials, and environmental lawyers who want to keep abreast of the latest developments in this still challenging field.
