Overview

Thirteen papers from the September 2001 NATO workshop are presented by Ray (civil and environmental engineering, U. of Hawaii at Manoa). Scientists from academia, research stations, and water utilities convened in order to explore the role of hydrogeological and well construction factors in the development of redox zones at bank filtration sites, their impacts on contaminant removal, mechanisms of pathogen removal, and the status of riverbank filtration processes in a number of countries.
