Overview

This second edition features new and expanded coverage of contaminant hydrogeologic investigations. It presents a practical approach to completing investigations for environmental compliance, emphasizing the use of geologic principles in assessment to move sites toward cleanup. Stressing the basics of collecting data that can withstand regulatory scrutiny and achieve remediation, Principles of Contaminant Hydrogeology, Second Edition demonstrates how to solve a client's site contamination problem while maximizing cost effectiveness. It focuses on small- and medium-sized firms, for which speed, accuracy, and cost are all crucial factors in the site assessment and closure process.
Based on "real world" problems, the book takes you step-by-step through the investigation and includes client-consultant-regulator interaction, budgets, ethics, and data extrapolation for solving problems. It introduces concepts such as field logistics, drilling techniques, sampling protocols, contaminant movement, and remediation. Regulatory personnel, hydrogeological consultants, drilling contractors, remediation contractors, university instructors, and students will benefit from the wealth of information provided in this new edition.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An introduction to the basic components of hydrogeology continuing, in this new edition, its emphasis on complete investigations and data collection that can withstand regulatory scrutiny and achieve remediation. Hydrogeologist Consultant Palmer introduces geologic frameworks and contaminant pathways as the background to sound investigating using sampling and mapping methods for groundwater and aquifer analysis, tying these applications to the regulatory and legal requirements of both the federal and state government. The concluding discussions examine cleanup technology, plans, and implementation. Includes diagrams, tables, and case studies. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
